Drug Interactions With Glipizide and Metformin

Corticosteroids
If glipizide and metformin is taken with corticosteroids, this can make glipizide and metformin less effective, which may increase your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). To prevent this, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your glipizide and metformin dose, especially when starting or stopping a corticosteroid.
 
Diuretics
If glipizide and metformin is combined with diuretics, this can make glipizide and metformin less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your glipizide and metformin dose, especially when starting or stopping a diuretic.
 
Taking glipizide and metformin with furosemide (a diuretic) can affect the levels of both furosemide and glipizide and metformin in your blood. This may increase your risk of side effects with glipizide and metformin, and may make furosemide less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to adjust your dose of these medications to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Estrogens
If glipizide and metformin is taken with estrogens, this can make glipizide and metformin less effective, which may increase your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your glipizide and metformin dose, especially when starting or stopping an estrogen, depending on your particular situation.
 
Isoniazid
Taking glipizide and metformin with isoniazid can make glipizide and metformin less effective, possibly increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). To prevent this, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your glipizide and metformin dose, especially when starting or stopping isoniazid.
