What should I avoid while taking glyburide?

If you are allergic to glyburide or sulfa drugs, or have diabetic ketoacidosis you should not take this medication. You should also avoid taking medications such as bosentan (Tracleer) or chlorpropamide (Diabinese) while you are on glyburide.

Glyburide can sometimes cause hypoglycemia by lowering blood sugar levels too much. To reduce your risk of developing hypoglycemia, avoid drinking alcohol and skipping meals. Until you know how you react to glyburide, you should not drive or operate any heavy machinery.

Glyburide can also make you more susceptible to sunburn, so be sure to take the necessary precautions when going outside.
