What medications interact with long-acting beta-agonist bronchodilators?

Donna Hill Howes, RN
Family Practitioner

If you are taking bromocriptine, digoxin, or a theophylline, a long-acting beta-agonist may not be a good option for you.

If you are taking erythromycin, salmeterol may not be a good option for you.

If you are taking a drug that prolongs the QTc interval, long-acting beta-agonists can lead to serious side effects.

If you are taking a strong CYP3A4 inhibitor, a beta blocker, or a tricyclic antidepressant, long-acting beta-agonists can lead to serious side effects.

If you are taking an MAO inhibitor or have taken an MAO inhibitor within the past 2 weeks, long-acting beta-agonists can lead to serious side effects.
