Products That Interfere With Terbutaline

Interactions With Terbutaline Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when terbutaline is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Beta Blockers
Taking terbutaline 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 terbutaline, all beta blockers can potentially cause problems.
 
Certain Diuretics
Taking terbutaline and certain diuretics together can increase your risk of low potassium levels (hypokalemia), especially when you use terbutaline more frequently than recommended. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
 
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
Terbutaline should be used with extreme caution in combination with MAOIs. Dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension) may result. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining terbutaline with an MAOI.
 
Tricyclic Antidepressants
Terbutaline 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 terbutaline with a tricyclic antidepressant.
