Can Tradjenta interact with other medications or foods?

Tradjenta (linagliptin), a drug that helps control blood sugar, can interact witha number of other medications, including insulin and other drugs that reduce blood sugar, rifampin (an antibiotic used to treat tuberculosis) and St. John's wort. Even though Tradjenta is sometimes prescribed with other diabetes drugs, it can interact with certain ones, so be sure your doctor knows everything you are taking. Give your doctor a list of all your medications, including prescription and nonprescription drugs, herbal remedies and supplements.

Tradjenta is meant to be used with diet and exercise to help control blood sugar levels, but you do not need to avoid any particular foods or drinks while taking it.
