Drug Interactions With Alogliptin

More Detail on Drug Interactions With Alogliptin

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when alogliptin is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Insulin
Because both insulin and alogliptin can lower blood sugar, taking these medicines together may increase your risk for dangerously low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia). This doesn't mean these medicines cannot be used together. However, your healthcare provider may need to lower your insulin dose if you take alogliptin in combination with insulin.
 
Insulin Secretagogues
Because insulin secretagogues and alogliptin can both lower blood sugar, taking these medicines together may increase your risk for dangerously low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia). This doesn't mean these medicines cannot be used together. However, your healthcare provider may need to lower your insulin secretagogue dose if you take it with alogliptin.
