Some medications used for diabetes include glimepiride (Amaryl), glyburide (DiaBeta, Glynase PresTab, Micronase), insulin, pioglitazone (Actos), rosiglitazone (Avandia), chlorpropamide (Diabinese), glipizide (Glucotrol), tolbutamide (Orinase), and others.

Agrimony contains chemicals called tannins. Tannins absorb substances in the stomach and intestines. Taking agrimony along with medications taken by mouth can decrease how much of the medicine your body absorbs and decrease the effectiveness of your medicine. To prevent this interaction, take agrimony at least 1 hour after medications you take by mouth.
