OptiPranolol Drug Interactions

OptiPranolol Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when OptiPranolol is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Certain Calcium Channel Blockers
Combining OptiPranolol with a calcium channel blocker may cause low blood pressure and (with certain calcium channel blockers) a dangerously slow heart rate (bradycardia) or heart failure. You may need to be monitored very closely if you take these medications together. In some cases, it is not recommended to combine OptiPranolol with a calcium channel blocker.
 
Digoxin
Combining OptiPranolol with digoxin may cause a dangerously slow heart rate (bradycardia). You may need to be monitored very closely if you take these medications together. In some cases, it is not recommended to combine OptiPranolol with digoxin.
 
Methacholine
It is very dangerous to combine methacholine with beta blockers (including OptiPranolol). Doing so could cause severe, asthma-like breathing problems that are not easily corrected. These medications should never be combined.
 
Other Beta Blockers
OptiPranolol is a beta blocker and generally should not be combined with other beta blockers, as this may increase the risk of serious side effects. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take OptiPranolol with another beta blocker, you may need to be monitored more closely.
 
Reserpine
Combining reserpine with a beta blocker can increase the risk of serious side effects. You may need to be monitored very closely if you take these medications together. In some cases, it is not recommended to combine OptiPranolol with reserpine.
