Medications for high blood pressure (Antihypertensive drugs) interacts with N-METHYLTYRAMINE
N-methyltyramine might increase blood pressure. Taking N-methyltyramine along with medications for high blood pressure might reduce the effects of these medications.
Some medications for high blood pressure include captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec), losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), diltiazem (Cardizem), Amlodipine (Norvasc), hydrochlorothiazide (HydroDiuril), furosemide (Lasix), and many others.
Stimulant drugs interacts with N-METHYLTYRAMINE
Stimulant drugs speed up the nervous system and can cause a jittery feeling and a rapid heartbeat. N-methyltyramine might also speed up the nervous system. Taking N-methyltyramine along with stimulant drugs might cause serious problems including high blood pressure.
Some stimulant drugs include diethylpropion (Tenuate), epinephrine, phentermine (Ionamin), pseudoephedrine (Sudafed), and many others.
