Daily Life Interactions for Tanzeum 30mg Pre-Filled Pen Powder for Injection

Elements of your daily lifestyle may have an effect on the medications you are taking. Drug interactions can result in unwanted side effects, reduce the effectiveness of your medicine or possibly increase the action of a particular medicine.

Moderate Lifestyle Interaction
Alcohol and Tanzeum 30mg Pre-Filled Pen Powder for Injection(Albiglutide)
Alcohol and Albiglutide(Albiglutide)
Ethanol may interfere with the actions of Antidiabetic Agents, including Albiglutide. 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 Albiglutide. You should also learn how to recognize the signs of low blood sugar.
Minor Lifestyle Interaction
Tobacco and Tanzeum 30mg Pre-Filled Pen Powder for Injection(Albiglutide)
Tobacco and Albiglutide(Albiglutide)
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 Albiglutide 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.
