Formoterol Solution Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when formoterol solution is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Beta Blockers
Taking formoterol solution and a beta blocker together can decrease the effectiveness of both medications.

Corticosteroids
Combining formoterol solution with certain steroids can increase the risk of low blood potassium. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely.

Theophylline (Uniphyl, Theocron, TheoCap, Theo-24, Elixophyllin)
