Drug interactions between propofol and succinylcholine
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: succinylcholine and propofol
Using succinylcholine together with propofol may increase the risk of cardiovascular side effects such as slow heart rate and heart block. A medication such as atropine may be given before induction and during anesthesia to help minimize the risk. These medications should only be given by health care providers specially trained in the use of these agents and in a setting where appropriate monitoring may be rendered. 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.

Alcohol can increase the nervous system side effects of propofol such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with propofol. Do not use more than the recommended dose of propofol, and avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medication affects you. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns.
