Drugs That Can Interfere With Sectral

Sectral Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Sectral is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Alpha Blockers
Combining Sectral with an alpha blocker can increase the risk of dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension). Check with your healthcare provider before combining such medications.
 
Calcium Channel Blockers
Combining Sectral with certain calcium channel blockers may cause dangerously low blood pressure and (for verapamil or diltiazem) a slow heart rate (bradycardia) and heart failure. You may need to be monitored very closely if you take these medications together. In some cases, it is not recommended to combine Sectral with a calcium channel blocker.
 
Certain Cold and Allergy Medications
Certain cold and allergy medications (especially those that contain decongestants) may cause high blood pressure in people taking Sectral. Severely high blood pressure could result. If you take Sectral, check with your healthcare provider before taking a cold or allergy medication.
 
Clonidine
If you take both clonidine and Sectral, stopping clonidine (without stopping the Sectral) could increase the risk of dangerously high blood pressure, strokes, and other serious problems. It is advised to stop taking Sectral several days before you gradually reduce the dose of clonidine. Do not attempt this without the approval and supervision of your healthcare provider.
 
Digoxin
Combining Sectral with digoxin may cause a dangerously slow heart rate (bradycardia). You may need to be monitored very closely if you take these medications together. In some cases, it is not recommended to combine Sectral with digoxin.
