Asthma Home > Drugs That Can Interfere With Maxair

Maxair Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Maxair is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Beta Blockers
Taking Maxair and a beta blocker together can decrease the effectiveness of both medications. Additionally, people with asthma should generally avoid beta blockers, as they may worsen their condition. While some beta blockers are less likely than others to interact with Maxair, all beta blockers can potentially cause problems.
Certain Diuretics
Taking Maxair and certain diuretics together can increase your risk of low potassium levels (hypokalemia), especially when you use Maxair more frequently than recommended. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
Maxair should not be taken with MAOIs or within two weeks of stopping an MAOI. Dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension) may result.
Tricyclic Antidepressants
Maxair should not be taken with tricyclic antidepressants or within two weeks of stopping a tricyclic antidepressant. Dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension) or an irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) may result.
