Atrovent Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Atrovent is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors
Taking Atrovent 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 Atrovent (which is also an anticholinergic medication) can increase your risk of Atrovent side effects, such as a dry mouth, constipation, dry eyes, or difficulty passing urine.
Pramlintide (Symlin)
Anticholinergic medications (such as Atrovent) and pramlintide both slow the movement of food through the digestive tract. Using them together may increase the chance of related side effects, such as upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, or constipation.
