Applies to:metoprolol and Hydroxy Compound (ephedrine/hydroxyzine/theophylline)

Talk to your doctor before using ephedrine-containing products together with a beta-blocker like metoprolol. Some beta-blockers can reduce the effects of ephedrine in relaxing airway muscles to help you breathe. In addition, if you have been using metoprolol, 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.
