Does saccharomyces cerevisiae interact with other medications?

If you take medication for diabetes, consult with your doctor before taking saccharomyces cerevisiae. Saccharomyces cerevisiae and diabetes medication may interact and lead to hypoglycemia. Saccharomyces cerevisiae can also interact with meperidine (Demerol) and with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) and cause a severe increase in blood pressure that could lead to heart attack or stroke. MAOIs include tranylcypromine (Parnate), phenelzine (Nardil), isocarboxazid (Marplan) and selegiline (Eldepryl, Ensam). If you are taking any medications, it's always a good idea to check with your doctor before using any new supplement, including saccharomyces cerevisiae.
