Brethine Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Brethine is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Beta Blockers
Taking Brethine and a beta blocker together can decrease the effectiveness of both medications.

Tricyclic Antidepressants
Brethine should be used with extreme caution in combination with tricyclic antidepressants. Dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension) or an irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) may result. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining Brethine with a tricyclic antidepressant.
