- Drug interactions with gilizide, metformin, lisinopril and welchol (1 answer)
I have been on Janumet , lisinopril and simvastatin. Dr. Replaced simvastatin with Welchol due to muscle pains. We also switched from Janumet back to just Metformin since glipizide was helping so much. Pharmacist said not to take Welchol at the same time as the others due to binding. I take the others at breakfast and supper. So when is the best time to take the Welchol? Dr. Said I can take it at night but it needs to taken with food.
