Do not take these drugs together without talking to your prescriber. Ethanol may interfere with the actions of Antidiabetic agents.

Alternative Antidiabetic Agents may be considered.

Tobacco and Linagliptin(Linagliptin)
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 action of linagliptin 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.
