Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: esmolol and ephedrine
Talk to your doctor before using ephedrine-containing products together with a beta-blocker like esmolol. Some beta-blockers can reduce the effects of ephedrine in relaxing airway muscles to help you breathe. In addition, if you have been using esmolol, you may not respond as well to ephedrine when it is given by injection to treat an emergency such as shock or falling blood pressure. Your healthcare provider should always be told if you are receiving, or have recently received, beta-blocker therapy. 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.
