Drug Interactions

By David Mendosa

Last Update: December 14, 2007

Knowing about drug interactions is particularly important for people with diabetes, since we are likely to be taking quite a few of these pills. Personally, I am taking 25 different ones. That's not because I am so sick, but rather because I want to stay well. Only one is a prescription.

Drug interaction sites, like everything else on the Internet, come and go. Some of the best at this time include:

  1. A hard-to-find tool on But its Drug Interactions database is easy to use once you find it.
  2. Another site,, includes a Drug Interactions Checker.
  3. Drug Digest has a another good site to Check Interactions.

If you do find interactions, be sure to discuss them with your doctor before discontinuing any prescription.
