Narcotic Pain Medications
Combining bisoprolol and hydrochlorothiazide with a narcotic pain medication may increase the risk of low blood pressure. This may result in lightheadedness, dizziness, or fainting, particularly if you suddenly stand up. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
NSAIDs may decrease the blood pressure-lowering effects of bisoprolol and hydrochlorothiazide. Talk with your healthcare provider about using these medications together in your particular situation.
Other Beta Blockers
Bisoprolol and hydrochlorothiazide is a beta blocker and should not be combined with other beta blockers, as this may increase the risk of serious side effects.
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, bisoprolol and hydrochlorothiazide should not be taken with reserpine.
Rifampin may increase the rate at which bisoprolol and hydrochlorothiazide is cleared from the body, perhaps making it less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
