Symlin Drug Interactions

Symlin Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Symlin is taken with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Acarbose
Taking Symlin with acarbose may increase your risk of side effects affecting the digestive tract. It is not recommended that these two medications be taken together.
 
Miglitol
Combining Symlin with miglitol may increase your risk of side effects affecting the digestive tract. It is not recommended that these two medications be taken together.
 
Pain Medications
Because Symlin slows down the digestive tract, it can also delay the onset of other side effects due to other medications, including pain medications. If you desire rapid pain relief, make sure to take your pain medication at least one hour before, or two hours after, your Symlin dosage, if possible.
 
Anticholinergics
Anticholinergics and Symlin can both slow down the action of the digestive tract, and taking Symlin with anticholinergic medications may increase your risk of side effects (especially nausea or vomiting). It is not recommended that Symlin be taken with anticholinergic medications.
