Will glibenclamide interact with other medicines?

Glibenclamide (called glyburide in the US) is taken to treat type 2 diabetes. It stimulates the pancreas to release insulin. Then, it helps the body use this hormone effectively. This drug is also used when diet alone can’t control symptoms. Tell your doctor about any prescription or over-the-counter medications or supplements. The following are a few drugs that may interact:

  • Antibiotics
  • Aspirin and other salicylates
  • Diuretics, which remove water and sodium
  • Heart and blood pressure medicines 
  • Oral contraceptives
  • Oral diabetes medicines
  • Allergy, asthma and cold medicines
  • Steroids
  • Thyroid medicines
  • Seizure medicines
  • Diet pills
