Interactions between your drugs


metoprolol norepinephrine

Applies to: Metoprolol Succinate ER (metoprolol) and norepinephrine

Beta-blockers like metoprolol may reduce the effects of vasopressors like norepinephrine. If you have been using metoprolol, you may not respond as well to vasopressors given to treat an emergency such as shock or a severe allergic reaction. 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.

Food can enhance the levels of metoprolol in your body. You should take metoprolol at the same time each day, preferably with or immediately following meals. This will make it easier for your body to absorb the medication. Avoid drinking alcohol, which could increase drowsiness and dizziness while you are taking metoprolol. Metoprolol is only part of a complete program of treatment that also includes diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely.
