Drugs That Can Interfere With Serevent

Serevent Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Serevent is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Beta Blockers
Taking Serevent 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 Serevent, all beta blockers can potentially cause problems.
 
Certain Antibiotics or Antifungals
Taking Serevent with certain antibiotics or antifungals can raise the level of Serevent in your blood, increasing your risk of dangerous side effects. Be sure to talk with your healthcare provider before taking Serevent with certain antibiotics or antifungal medications.
  
Certain Diuretics
Taking Serevent and certain diuretics together can increase your risk of low potassium levels (hypokalemia), especially when you use Serevent more frequently than recommended. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
 
Digoxin (Digitek, Lanoxin)
Serevent may decrease the level of digoxin in your blood, perhaps making it less effective. If you are taking these drugs together, your healthcare provider may need to monitor the level of digoxin in your blood and adjust your digoxin dosage as necessary -- especially when you are starting or stopping Serevent.
 
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
Serevent should be used with extreme caution in combination with MAOIs. Dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension) may result. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining Serevent with an MAOI.
 
Other Long-Acting Beta Agonists
Serevent should not be used in combination with other long-acting beta agonists, as this may increase your risk of a severe asthma attack or even death.
 
Tricyclic Antidepressants
Serevent should be used with extreme caution in combination with tricyclic antidepressants. Dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension) or an irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) may result. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining Serevent with a tricyclic antidepressant.
