Specific Drugs That React With Combivent

Combivent Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Combivent is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors
Taking Combivent with an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor can make both medications less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely and adjust your dose of these medications.
Anticholinergic Medications
Taking an anticholinergic medication with Combivent (which also contains an anticholinergic medication) can increase your risk of Combivent side effects, such as dry mouth, constipation, dry eyes, or difficulty passing urine.
Beta Blockers
Taking Combivent and a beta blocker together can decrease the effectiveness of both medications. In addition, beta blockers can have a negative effect on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). While some beta blockers are less likely than others to interact with Combivent, all beta blockers can potentially cause problems.
Certain Diuretics
Combining Combivent and certain diuretics can increase your risk of low potassium levels (hypokalemia), especially if you use Combivent more frequently than recommended. Talk to your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
Combivent may decrease the level of digoxin in your blood, perhaps making it less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor the level of digoxin in your blood and adjust your dosage as necessary, especially when you are starting or stopping Combivent.
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors
Combivent should be used with extreme caution in combination with MAOIs, as it may result in dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension). Talk to your healthcare provider before combining these two medications.
