Specific Drugs That React With Ventolin

Ventolin Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Ventolin is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Beta Blockers
Taking Ventolin 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 Ventolin, all beta blockers can potentially cause problems.
 
Certain Diuretics
Taking Ventolin and certain diuretics together can increase your risk of low potassium levels (hypokalemia), especially when you use Ventolin more frequently than recommended. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
 
Digoxin (Digitek, Lanoxin)
Ventolin may decrease the level of digoxin in your blood, perhaps making it less effective. If you are taking these drugs together, your healthcare provider may need to monitor the level of digoxin in your blood and adjust your digoxin dosage as necessary -- especially when you are starting or stopping Ventolin.
 
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
Ventolin should be used with extreme caution in combination with MAOIs, since taking these drugs together may result in dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension). Talk with your healthcare provider before combining Ventolin with an MAOI.
 
Tricyclic Antidepressants
Ventolin should be used with extreme caution in combination with tricyclic antidepressants, since using these drugs together may result in dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension) or an irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia). Talk with your healthcare provider before combining Ventolin with a tricyclic antidepressant.
