Does CLA Interact With Other Drugs?
It is not known if CLA
(conjugated linoleic acid
) interacts with other drugs, supplements, or foods. Because CLA has not been adequately studied in combination with other drugs or supplements, it is impossible to predict if CLA can safely be taken with other drugs or supplements.
Some forms of CLA (known as isomers) seem to increase blood sugar, which theoretically may cause problems in people taking diabetes medications
. You may need to monitor your blood sugar more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust the dose of your diabetes
Final Thoughts on CLA Drug Interactions
Currently, very little information is available about CLA drug interactions. If you take any other medications or supplements, please talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about 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 of these medications, your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely, just in case CLA interacts with these medications.
