Precautions

Vexazone can interact negatively with some other medicines including chlorpropamide, glibenclamide, gliclazide, insulin, metformin, oral contraceptives, gemfibrozil, rifampicin and tolbutamide. These can reduce the effectiveness of Vexazone, or may be made less effective by Vexazone.

Decreased blood glucose levels as a result of taking Vexazone can make you feel drowsy. Be aware of this when driving cars or operating machinery.
