Interactions between your drugs

Using metoprolol together with celecoxib can increase your blood levels of metoprolol.

Talk with your doctor before using these medications together, and report any side effects promptly. You may need a dose adjustment or need your blood pressure checked more often if you use both medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
