MONITOR: Although they are often combined in clinical practice, diuretics and beta-blockers may increase the risk of hyperglycemia and hypertriglyceridemia in some patients, especially in patients with diabetes or latent diabetes. In addition, the risk of QT interval prolongation and arrhythmias (e.g. torsades de pointes) due to sotalol may be increased by potassium-depleting diuretics.
MANAGEMENT: Monitoring of serum potassium levels, blood pressure, and blood glucose is recommended during coadministration. Patients should be advised to seek medical assistance if they experience dizziness, weakness, fainting, fast or irregular heartbeats, or loss of blood glucose control.

Lexapro (escitalopram)
Lipitor (atorvastatin)
Lumigan (bimatoprost ophthalmic)

Norvasc (amlodipine)
amlodipine – timolol
Applies to:Norvasc (amlodipine) and timolol ophthalmic
MONITOR: Additive reductions in heart rate, cardiac conduction, and cardiac contractility may occur when calcium channel blockers are used concomitantly with beta blockers, particularly in patients with ventricular or conduction abnormalities. While this combination may be useful and effective in some situations, potentially serious cardiovascular adverse effects such as congestive heart failure, severe hypotension, and/or exacerbation of angina may occur. The proposed mechanisms include additive slowing in AV conduction, reduced cardiac contractility secondary to beta-blockade, and decreased peripheral vascular resistance secondary to calcium channel blockade. In addition, some calcium channel blockers may inhibit the CYP450 metabolism of hepatically metabolized beta blockers, resulting in increased serum concentrations.
MANAGEMENT: Close clinical monitoring of patient hemodynamic response and tolerance is recommended if a calcium channel blocker is prescribed with a beta blocker, and the dosage of one or both agents adjusted as necessary. The same precaution should be observed when beta blocker ophthalmic solutions are used, since they are systemically absorbed and can produce clinically significant systemic effects even at low or undetectable plasma levels.
