Tonalin CLA Drug Interactions
Although it is not known whether Tonalin CLA interacts with other medications or supplements, there may be certain forms of CLA that increase blood sugar levels. This could cause problems for people who take diabetes medications. If you are taking any other medications or supplements, talk to your healthcare provider about any potential drug interactions with Tonalin CLA.
Do Drugs Interact With Tonalin CLA?It is not known if Tonalin® CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) interacts with other drugs, supplements, or foods. Because this product has not been adequately studied in combination with other drugs or supplements, it is impossible to predict if it can safely be taken with other drugs or supplements.
There are different forms of CLA (known as isomers). One isomer seems to increase blood sugar levels, which may cause problems in people taking diabetes medications. Because Tonalin CLA contains this isomer in combination with another CLA isomer, it is difficult to predict how exactly the supplement might affect blood sugar levels. If you have diabetes, you may need to monitor your blood sugar levels more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust the dose of your diabetes medications.
If you take any medications or supplements, please talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about any Tonalin CLA drug interactions that may apply to you. Some medications are so sensitive that even very small changes can cause disastrous effects. If you are taking any such medications, your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely, just in case Tonalin CLA interacts with these drugs.
