Drug Interactions With Pramlintide

Pramlintide Drug Interactions Explained

 
Acarbose (Precose)
Taking pramlintide with acarbose may increase your risk of side effects of the digestive tract. Healthcare providers do not generally recommend taking these two medications together.
 
Miglitol (Glyset)
Taking pramlintide with miglitol may increase your risk of side effects of the digestive tract. Healthcare providers do not usually recommend taking these two medications together.
 
Pain Medications
Because pramlintide slows down the digestive tract, the medication can slow the onset of developing other side effects due to other medications, including pain medications. If you desire rapid pain relief, make sure to take your pain medication at least one hour before, or two hours after, your pramlintide injection if possible.
 
Anticholinergics
Anticholinergics and pramlintide can both slow the movement in the digestive tract, and taking pramlintide with anticholinergic medications may increase your risk of side effects (especially nausea or vomiting). Healthcare providers do not generally recommend taking these two medications together.
