DRUG INTERACTIONS

Other beta adrenergic aerosol bronchodilators should not be used concomitantly with Alupent( (metaproterenol sulfate USP) because they may have additive effects. Beta adrenergic agonists should be administered with caution to patients being treated with monoamine oxidase inhibitors or tricyclic antidepressants, since the action of beta adrenergic agonists on the vascular system may be potentiated.
