Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: Sudafed 12 Hour Pressure+Pain (naproxen / pseudoephedrine) and propranolol
If you use propranolol for the treatment of high blood pressure, talk to your doctor before using it together with naproxen. Combining these medications may reduce the effects of propranolol in lowering your blood pressure, especially if you use naproxen frequently or regularly (for example, to treat arthritis or chronic pain). You may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring by your doctor to safely use both medications. 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.

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.
