Victoza Drug Interactions

Victoza and Hypoglycemia

When used by itself, Victoza is not particularly likely to cause dangerously low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). However, combining it with insulin or oral medications that increase insulin production appears to increase this risk. Such medications include:
 
 
 
Victoza has not been studied in combination with insulin; people taking insulin are advised not to combine it with Victoza, and vice versa.
 
If you take Victoza with any of the previously listed medications that increase the risk of low blood sugar, you will probably need to monitor your blood sugar more closely, and your healthcare provider may want to lower the dosage of your other medication (the insulin, meglitinide, or sulfonylurea) when you start taking Victoza.
 

Final Thoughts

It is possible that not every Victoza drug interaction was discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about the specific interactions that may apply to you.
