It's important to be aware of the potential for interactions with other medications. Other oral antidiabetic medications, MAOI, beta blockers, ACEI, acetylsalicylic acid, anabolic steroids, and sulphonamides may cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), whereas oral contraceptives, thiazides, glucocorticoids, thyroid hormone therapy, sympathomimetics, growth hormone, and danazol may cause hyperglycemia (high blood sugar).

Beta-blockers can potentially diminish or completely mask the initial warning signs that help you recognize low blood sugar levels.

If you experience symptoms like unusual shortness of breath, rapid weight gain, or localized swelling (edema), it is crucial to inform your doctor promptly.
