What should I avoid while taking DiaBeta?

If you are on the type 2 diabetes drug DiaBeta (glyburide), it's important to avoid taking bosentan (Tracleer), a drug used to treat hypertension in the lungs. Ask your doctor about any other drugs you may need to avoid while on this drug; there are several that can interact with DiaBeta or interfere with blood sugar levels.

DiaBeta increases the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight, so do not spend too much time in the sun. Use sunscreen and cover up if you have to be outside for a while.

Talk with your doctor about whether you should avoid alcohol while taking DiaBeta. You should also talk with your doctor if you're pregnant or considering becoming pregnant, breastfeeding or considering it.
