Decongestant- phenylephrine. Bp med - inderal. Antidepressants- Zoloft and wellbutrin (bupropion). And synthroid. I had asked the? About decongestant dosage
Decongestant. We need all the pertinent info together in one question since these questions do not appear sequentially. There are several drug interactions among the current meds. Decongestants interact with BP meds like Inderal (propranolol) & lessen their effect, resulting (possibly) in higher blood pressure. Your pcp can determine what dose will least effect BP & still produce the desired decongesting effect.
Careful... Primary concern would be elevation of blood pressure with phenylephrine or any decongestant.... Would start at lowest dose per package instructions and check your BP a couple of times in the several hours after taking it. Safer to just use saline nasal spray/ rinse, nasal steroid spray (e.g. Flonase), oral antihistamine e.g. Plain Claritin (not claritin-d), and/or plain mucinex (guaifenesin).
Doc is treating me for strep. Pneumonia. Gave me z pack and steroid shot. I take inderal. Zoloft. Wellbutrin (bupropion). An synthroid. Can I take albuterol?
Best not to. Inderal (propranolol) is a beta blocker; albuterol is a beta agonist; so they tend to counter each other; you might get increased bronchospasm with the combo. There are potential interactions among the other meds you are taking as well. See your doc to possibly change some of your meds or at least optimize doses to minimize potential side effects.
Yes. Albuterol as an inhaled medicine in minimally absorbed unless using large amounts. In any case its main side effect would be palpitations, although in asthma, Inderal (propranolol) may promote bronchoconstriction, which the albuterol is targeted to treat. This is less of an issue in patients with fixed airway obstruction (copd) so you should discuss with your doctor what role each of the medications is playing.
I got the Depo-Provera Medrol 20 mg shot today and I take inderal Synthroid Zoloft wellbutrin (bupropion) is their any interactions? I was on azyth and can I tk mucinex?
Drug interactions. Your body normally makes a set amount of cortisone each day. A steroid shot like depomedrol is usually administered to control inflammation and the drug releases slowly into your system over 4-6 weeks. It is generally safe in combination with inderal, synthroid, zoloft, and wellbutrin (bupropion). It may increase your risk of stomach bleeding if you are prone to ulcers and/or take other anti-inflammatory med.
