Drug interactions between orlistat and pramlintide
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: orlistat and pramlintide
As you lose weight during treatment with orlistat, your dosage requirement of pramlintide or any other diabetic medications you are receiving may change. You may need more frequent monitoring of your blood sugar and adjustment of your diabetic regimen both during and after treatment with orlistat. Let your doctor know if you experience hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. Symptoms of hypoglycemia include headache, dizziness, drowsiness, nervousness, confusion, tremor, nausea, hunger, weakness, perspiration, palpitation, and rapid heartbeat. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
Drug and food interactions
Applies to: pramlintide
Pramlintide may interact with other medications if taken at the same time. Your other medications should be administered at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after your pramlintide injection. Talk with your doctor before using alcohol while you are using pramlintide. Using pramlintide together with alcohol can lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Alcohol can cause increased blood sugar due to the calories in alcoholic beverages. You may need a dose adjustment and you may need to check your blood sugar more often.
