Drugs That React With Pirbuterol

Interactions With Pirbuterol Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when pirbuterol is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Beta Blockers
Taking pirbuterol and a beta blocker together can decrease the effectiveness of both medications. Additionally, people with asthma should generally avoid beta blockers, as they may worsen their condition. While some beta blockers are less likely than others to interact with pirbuterol, all beta blockers can potentially cause problems.
Certain Diuretics
Taking pirbuterol and certain diuretics together can increase your risk of low potassium levels (hypokalemia), especially when you use pirbuterol more frequently than recommended. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
Pirbuterol should not be taken with MAOIs or within two weeks of stopping an MAOI. Taking these medicines together may result in dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension).
Tricyclic Antidepressants
Pirbuterol should not be taken with tricyclic antidepressants or within two weeks of stopping a tricyclic antidepressant. Dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension) or an irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) may occur as a result.
