Using phenylephrine together with a beta-blocker like bisoprolol may lead to an increase in blood pressure. Some beta-blockers may enhance the effects of phenylephrine, which can lead to constriction of your blood vessels and an increase in blood pressure. Contact your doctor if your condition changes. You may need a dose adjustment or your blood pressure checked more often if you 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.
