Drug Interactions With Repaglinide and Metformin

Repaglinide and Metformin Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when repaglinide and metformin is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Amiloride or Amiloride-HCTZ
Theoretically, amiloride may affect the ability of the kidneys to filter metformin (one of the components of repaglinide and metformin) from the blood, possibly leading to high levels of metformin. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely if you take these medications together.
 
Atazanavir
Taking repaglinide and metformin with atazanavir can significantly increase the level of repaglinide (one of the components of repaglinide and metformin) in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects (especially dangerously low blood sugar). Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these two medications together.
 
Certain Antibiotics or Antifungals
Taking repaglinide and metformin with certain antibiotics or antifungals can increase the level of repaglinide and metformin in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to lower your dose of repaglinide and metformin while you are taking antibiotics or antifungals.
 
Cimetidine
Cimetidine may affect the ability of the kidneys to filter metformin (one of the components of repaglinide and metformin) from the blood, possibly leading to high levels of metformin. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely if you take these medications together.
 
Cyclosporine
Cyclosporine may increase the level of repaglinide in the blood, perhaps increasing the risk of side effects of repaglinide. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Deferasirox
Studies suggest that deferasirox may increase the level of repaglinide and metformin in the blood, perhaps increasing the risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to decrease your dose of repaglinide and metformin if you are taking these two medications together.
   
Delavirdine
Taking repaglinide and metformin with delavirdine can increase the level of repaglinide (one of the components of repaglinide and metformin) in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to decrease your dose of repaglinide and metformin if you are taking these two medications together.
