Will FODZYME interact with other medications?Updated 8 months ago

There is a small body of research on the use of alpha-galactosidase digestive enzymes and alpha-glucosidase inhibitors, a class of medications for diabetes that inhibit the absorption of carbohydrates. Examples of these medications include acarbose (Precose) and miglitol (Glyset) and their side effects can include flatulence and diarrhea. Concurrent use of alpha-galactosidase digestive enzymes and alpha-glucosidase inhibitors may diminish, but not fully deplete, the activity of acarbose. It can help address gastrointestinal symptoms related to acarbose use [1].

Apart from this, there is nothing to indicate FODZYME interacts with other prescription medications. As a precaution, we always recommend consulting with a healthcare provider before trying FODZYME.
