How does Lantus interact with other medications or foods?

Beta-blockers, a class of drugs used to treat heart disease and some mood disorders, may affect your blood sugar level or mask symptoms of low blood sugar. ACE inhibitor drugs may heighten your risk for low blood sugar. Conversely, a class of drugs called atypical antipsychotics, prescribed to treat mental illness, may lead to high blood sugar because it interferes with Lantus's effectiveness. Drinking alcohol may also interfere with Lantus by affecting your blood sugar level. Lantus may interact with disopyramide, fibrates, fluoxetine, MAOIs, diabetes medications, pentamidine, salicylates, antibiotics, corticosteroids, danazol, diuretics, estrogen, birth control pills, isoniazid, phenothiazines, progesterones, protease inhibitors, somatropin, sympathomimetics, and thyroid hormones.
