    Hi Bud,

     

    Thank you for your question. Without knowing anything about you personally, I can't say for sure whether it's okay for you to take these medications together. I can let you know that the medications are often used in combination, and there is actually a drug on the market that combines the two medications in one tablet (it's called Metaglip).

     

    Best of luck,

    Casey

    Bud-

     

    Hello! I am not a Doctor and I can't tell you if it's okay to take metformin and glipizide together.  I can speak from my own experience. I used metformin and glipizide together for about 2.5 years. I did not have any complications from using the 2 med's together.  The best person to ask this question to would be either your physician or your pharmacist. They know what current medications you are on and your current health condition.
