What should I avoid while using DuoNeb?

While using DuoNeb (a combination drug that includes ipratropium and albuterol) to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), you should avoid certain medications that can interact with it. They include anticholinergic medications (such as antispasmodics), beta-blockers, diuretics and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) and tricyclic antidepressants. Talk with your doctor about any medications, supplements and vitamins you are taking before using DuoNeb.

Avoid getting DuoNeb in your eyes because doing so can cause eye pain, blurred vision and enlarged pupils. It can also cause narrow-angle glaucoma or worsen this condition if you already have it.

Do not use more DuoNeb than prescribed. Excess use of this drug can result in serious side effects or death.
