Sun exposure and Glipizide

How does Glipizide affect my body's reaction to sunlight and what are the symptoms of that interaction.
Thanks,
ShakeyBob

Glipizide is one of many drugs which could cause photosensitivity. As an added precaution one should wear suncreen year round [SPF 30+].

The best way to find out if any medication you are taking is going to cause sun sensitivity is to ask your pharmacist...he/she has direct access to the possible interactions for the medication you are taking.
