Alcohol and Exenatide(Exenatide)
Ethanol may interfere with the actions of Antidiabetic Agents, including Exenatide. Alcoholic beverages can increase the risk of low blood sugar, or can cause increased blood sugar due to the calories in these beverages. Limit alcohol containing medicines and beverages if you are using Exenatide. You should also learn how to recognize the signs of low blood sugar.
Minor Lifestyle Interaction

Tobacco and Exenatide(Exenatide)
If you use tobacco or are trying to quit tobacco use, you may need to monitor your blood sugar more frequently. Nicotine, a component of tobacco, can increase the blood sugar. Also, if you are trying to quit smoking, as your body adjusts to not smoking, your blood sugar levels may change; the actions of Exenatide may be increased and this could lead to low blood sugar. Know the symptoms of low or high blood sugar and report them if they occur. Monitor your blood sugar regularly.
