  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  An increased hypoglycaemic effect has occurred or might be expected with ACE inhibitors, alcohol, allopurinol, some analgesics (notably azapropazone, phenylbutazone, and the salicylates), azole antifungals (fluconazole, ketoconazole, and miconazole), chloramphenicol, cimetidine, clofibrate and related compounds, coumarin anticoagulants, fluoroquinolones, heparin, MAOIs, octreotide (although this may also produce hyperglycaemia), ranitidine, sulfinpyrazone, sulfonamides (including co-trimoxazole), tetracyclines, and tricyclic antidepressants. Beta blockers have been reported both to increase hypoglycaemia and to mask the typical sympathetic warning signs. There are sporadic and conflicting reports of a possible interaction with calcium-channel blockers.Octreotide can inhibit sulfonylurea induced release of insulin from the pancreas.,

Ref :-   Book : Principle of Pharmacology (The Pathophysiologic Basis of Drug Therapy)    Page : 538   Edition : 3,
  ►  Mechanism of Action :   Inhibit the β-cell K+/ATP channel at the SUR1 subunit, thereby stimulating insulin release from pancreatic β-cells and increasing circulating insulin to levels sufficient to overcome insulin resistance. ,
