What should I avoid while taking Janumet?

While taking Janumet, you should avoid drinking alcohol, especially in excessive quantities. When consumed with Janumet, alcohol increases your risk for lactic acidosis, a serious medical condition that requires emergency treatment. It is also important to avoid other medications that can have adverse interactions with Janumet, such as diuretics, steroids, phenothiazines, thyroid medications, oral contraceptives, anti-convulsants, NSAIDs, aspirin, sulfa drugs, MAOIs, and beta blockers. You should discuss all of your medications with your doctor to ensure that they will not interact adversely with Janumet.
