You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Janumet dose, especially when starting or stopping a phenothiazine.
 
Phenytoin
If Janumet is taken with phenytoin, it can make Janumet 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 Janumet dose, especially when starting or stopping a phenytoin.
 
Thyroid Medications
Taking Janumet with thyroid medications can make Janumet less effective, potentially increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia).
