What drugs may interact with voglibose?
Voglibose may interact with other drugs that you are currently taking, which can change how your drug works or increase your risk for serious side effects.
So, to avoid any potential drug interactions, you should keep a list of all the drugs you are using (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. For your safety, do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any drugs without your doctor’s approval.
Take extra precaution if you are taking multiple blood sugar-lowering agents (e.g. metformin, insulin, sulfonylureas), as these may cause severe hypoglycemia when taken with voglibose.
