Alogliptin Disease Interactions

There are 3 disease interactions with alogliptin:


DPP-4 inhibitors (Includes alogliptin) ↔ pancreatitis

Severe Potential Hazard, Low plausibility. Applies to: Pancreatitis

There have been postmarketing reports of acute pancreatitis in patients taking DPP-4 inhibitors. These drugs should be used with caution in patients with a history of pancreatitis or pancreatic disease, although it is unknown if they are at increased risk. Patients should be observed for signs and symptoms of pancreatitis during treatment. If pancreatitis is suspected, treatment should be discontinued immediately and appropriate management should be initiated.


Alogliptin (Includes alogliptin) ↔ liver disease

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Liver Disease

There have been postmarketing reports of hepatic failure (fatal and non-fatal) in patients taking alogliptin. Treatment should be started with caution in patients with preexisting liver disease. It is recommended to assess the liver function of the patient before starting therapy. If liver test abnormalities worsen without explanation during treatment, therapy should be discontinued and the cause of the abnormalities should be studied.


DPP-4 (Includes alogliptin) ↔ renal dysfunction

Moderate Potential Hazard, High plausibility. Applies to: Renal Dysfunction

It is recommended to assess renal function prior to initiating treatment with DPP-4 inhibitors. Patients with moderate to severe renal insufficiency and end stage renal dysfunction will require a dose adjustment. Linagliptin will not require a dose adjustment per manufacturer's information. Additionally, there have been postmarketing reports of worsening renal function in some patients with renal insufficiency taking sitagliptin at inappropriate doses. However, sitagliptin has not been found to be nephrotoxic in preclinical studies or clinical trials at appropriate doses.

Drug Interaction Classification

The classifications below are a general guideline only. It is difficult to determine the relevance of a particular drug interaction to any individual given the large number of variables.
Major Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.
Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.
Unknown No information available.

Do not stop taking any medications without consulting your healthcare provider.
