Products That Can React With Isoptin SR

Isoptin SR Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Isoptin SR is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Alcohol
Isoptin SR can decrease your body's ability to remove alcohol from your body, which can result in higher blood alcohol levels and prolonged intoxication. Be sure to use caution while drinking alcohol if you are taking Isoptin SR.
 
Aspirin
Combining aspirin with Isoptin SR may increase your risk of bleeding. Make sure to talk to your healthcare provider before combining these two medications.
 
Benzodiazepines
Isoptin SR can increase the level of certain benzodiazepines in your blood, possibly increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to decrease your benzodiazepine dose to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Beta Blockers
Combining Isoptin SR with a beta blocker may increase your risk of side effects, especially low blood pressure (hypotension) and a slow heart rate (bradycardia). Your healthcare provider should closely monitor your heart rate and blood pressure if you are taking a beta blocker with Isoptin SR.
 
Other Blood Pressure Medications
Taking Isoptin SR with other high blood pressure medications may lower your blood pressure too much. Your healthcare provider should carefully monitor your blood pressure when combining Isoptin SR with other blood pressure medications.
 
Buspirone
Isoptin SR can increase the level of buspirone in your blood, potentially increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to decrease your buspirone dosage to prevent this interaction from occurring.
