In the periphery, the sympathomimetic actions of dexmethylphenidate are minimal at therapeutic doses, and are less than those of the amphetamines or insdrt.

Sudden death has been reported in association with CNS stimulant treatment at usual doses in children with structural cardiac abnormalities or other serious heart problems e. Are generic drugs as safe as brand-name drugs?

Moderate The concomitant use of rasagiline and sympathomimetics was not allowed in clinical studies; therefore, caution is advised during concurrent use of rasagiline and ineert including stimulants for ADHD and weight loss, non-prescription nasal, oral, and ophthalmic decongestants, and weight loss dietary supplements containing Ephedra.

Serious side effects such as nervousness, irritability, arrhythmias, palpitations, insfrt, or other stimulant-related adverse effects may occur or get worse during concurrent use. Your Packahe Your name is required. The drug exhibits activity similar to that of the amphetamines, although the underlying pharmacology for these two drug classes may differ.

Hypertensive crisis with MAOIs. Drugs that reduce catecholamine uptake or deplete catecholamine stores, such as sympathomimetics, may interfere with iobenguane I uptake into cells and interfere with dosimetry calculations resulting in altered iobenguane I efficacy.


Inhibiting the catechol-O-methyltransferase COMT enzyme decreases the metabolism of levodopa to metabolites, thereby increasing the dopaminergic effects of the drug.

Initially, 5 mg PO once daily in the morning if not currently taking methylphenidate or dexmethylphenidate. Monitor for new or worsening aggressive behavior or hostility. At high doses, diminished metabolism of serotonin and norepinephrine are also possible through inhibition of MAO-A.

If suicide-related events emerge during treatment, consideration should be given to dose reduction or drug padkage, especially if symptoms are severe, abrupt in onset, or were not part of the patient’s presenting symptoms. Sudden unexplained death SUD and myocardial infarction have occurred in adults receiving stimulants at standard dosages for attention-deficit hyperactivity-disorder ADHD.

Moderate Sympathomimetic amines should zr used with caution in patients with thyrotoxicosis since these patients are unusually responsive to sympathomimetic amines. Caution is warranted during co-administration of digoxin and sympathomimetics. The American Heart Association AHA states that it is reasonable to consider the use of these medications in pediatric patients with congenital heart disease without current hemodynamic or arrhythmic concerns or congenital heart disease that is considered stable by the patient’s pediatric cardiologist, unless the cardiologist has specific concerns.

Aqua-Blue Opaque Therapeutic Category: Tourette’s syndrome in patient or family. Home Product Detail print. Moderate Administer sympathomimetics with caution with beta-agonists such as indacaterol. Dexmethylphenidate is not FDA-approved for obesity treatment.

Moderate Increased dopaminergic effects may occur during coadministration of dexmethylphenidate, an inhibitor of dopamine reuptake, and medications that increase dopaminergic activity such as levodopa. In addition, dexmethylphenidate is thought to exert some of its beneficial effects through dopamine re-uptake blockade while amoxapine has pacmage dopamine antagonist properties.

In theory, the therapeutic effects of either agent may be reduced. The reduction in TSH secretion is not sustained; hypothyroidism does not occur.

Angiotensin II receptor antagonists: Stimulant medications are associated with peripheral vasculopathy, including Raynaud’s phenomenon. Major Concomitant use of cardiac glycosides with sympathomimetics can cause arrhythmias because sympathomimetics enhance ectopic pacemaker activity.

Avoid in known structural cardiac abnormalities, cardiomyopathy, serious arrhythmias, coronary artery disease, and other cardiac problems.

Although coadministration of methylphenidate, a racemic compound containing dexmethylphenidate, and atomoxetine did not increase the cardiovascular effects seen with administration of methylphenidate alone during clinical trials, concurrent use of sympathomimetic agents may result in an increased risk of noradrenergic effects. The combination of dexmethylphenidate with other CNS stimulants may increase the incidence of side effects.

Moderate Dexmethylphenidate pacoage reduce the hypotensive effect of antihypertensive agents, including indapamide.
