If you are allergic to sulfonamides ("sulfa" medications), you may also be allergic to glipizide, although most people with sulfa allergies can take glipizide without problems. To be safe, let your health care provider know if you have a sulfa allergy.

Best of luck...

The short answer is probably yes but there is a distinct possible that you will be allegeric to glipizide as well. Talk to a doctor and consider the risks yourself. When you say your allegeric, just how allegeric are you?

Like all drugs, there are risks and you must weigh them for yourself. Don't be afraid to overrule your doctor and say no. Glipizide can be a wonderful drug but you might not want it or it might not work for you It can also cause weight gain and may burn out the islets of the pancress.

On the other hand, its cheap and generally very safe
