Drug Interactions With Metoprolol

Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
NSAIDs may decrease the blood pressure-lowering effects of metoprolol. Talk with your healthcare provider about using these medications together in your particular situation.
 
Other Beta Blockers
Metoprolol is a beta blocker and should not be combined with other beta blockers, as this may increase the risk of serious side effects.
 
Reserpine
Combining reserpine with a beta blocker can increase the risk of serious side effects. You may need to be monitored closely if you take these medications together. In some cases, they should not be combined.
 
Ritonavir (Norvir)
If you are taking metoprolol and ritonavir together, your body may metabolize metoprolol differently than intended. This can cause an increased level of metoprolol in your body. If you are using these medicines together, your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely and/or adjust your metoprolol dose.
 
Terbinafine (Lamisil)
If you are taking both metoprolol and terbinafine, your body may metabolize metoprolol differently than intended. This can cause an increased level of metoprolol in your body. If you are using these medicines together, your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely and/or adjust your metoprolol dose.
