Neo-Synephrine Drug Interactions
Neo-Synephrine Drug Interactions Explained
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Neo-Synephrine is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Taking Neo-Synephrine with a cannabinoid drug increases the risk of a rapid heart rate (tachycardia), which can be dangerous. If you notice a rapid heart rate while taking Neo-Synephrine (with or without a cannabinoid), it is probably best to stop taking it.
Iobenguane I 123
Neo-Synephrine may interfere with tests that use iobenguane I 123. You should not take Neo-Synephrine for several days before a laboratory test that involves iobenguane I 123 (your healthcare provider will give you more specific instructions).
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
If a significant amount of oxymetazoline or phenylephrine (the active ingredient in Neo-Synephrine) is absorbed into the bloodstream, it is possible that combining Neo-Synephrine and an MAOI could cause life-threatening problems. If you are on an MAOI, make sure to check with your healthcare provider before using Neo-Synephrine. Often, it is recommended to avoid Neo-Synephrine while taking an MAOI or even within 14 days of taking an MAOI.
Tricyclic antidepressants could increase the risk of high blood pressure due to Neo-Synephrine. This is most likely to happen if a significant amount of Neo-Synephrine is absorbed into the bloodstream, which might occur if the spray runs down the back of the throat and is swallowed. If you take a tricyclic antidepressant, check with your healthcare provider before taking Neo-Synephrine.
