These side effects are most likely to be seen at the beginning of treatment, following a dose increase, or when treatment is restarted after an interruption. Let your doctor know if you develop these symptoms and they do not go away after a few days or they become troublesome.

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.

Moderate

pseudoephedrine tamsulosin

Applies to: Tylenol Allergy Complete NightTime (acetaminophen / diphenhydramine / pseudoephedrine) and Flomax (tamsulosin)

Consumer information for this interaction is not currently available.

MONITOR: Sympathomimetic agents, such as pseudoephedrine, may antagonize the effects of antihypertensives that interfere with sympathetic activity, such as alpha- and beta-adrenergic blocking agents. In contrast, alpha- and beta-blockers may diminish the vasoconstrictive effects of sympathomimetics. The mechanism of this interaction has not been reported, but may involve competitive inhibition at the adrenergic receptor. Severe hypertension may occur in patients receiving beta-blockers.

MANAGEMENT: Caution and close monitoring of blood pressure is recommended if pseudoephedrine is administered with these antihypertensives. Discontinuation of the sympathomimetic may be necessary if hypertension develops.
