Janumet Drug Interactions

A number of medications should not be taken with Janumet. Drug interactions may occur if the combination diabetes medication is taken with calcium channel blockers, corticosteroids, diuretics, or estrogens. These interactions can decrease the effectiveness of Janumet, which can increase your risk of developing high blood sugar. If Janumet drug interactions are a concern, your healthcare provider may adjust your dosages.
