Formoterol relaxes the bronchial smooth muscle by selectively acting on ?2-receptors with minimal effect on heart rate. It has a long-acting effect.
Drug Interactions ::
Concomitant treatment with xanthine derivatives, steroids or diuretics may potentiate a possible hypokalaemic effect of ?-agonists. Increased susceptibility to cardiac arrhythmias in patients treated with digitalis. Concomitant use with quinidine, disopyramide, procainamide, phenothiazines, antihistamines, MAOI or TCAs can prolong the QT-interval and increase the risk of ventricular arrhythmias. L-dopa, L-thyroxine, oxytocin and alcohol can impair cardiac tolerance towards ?2-sympathomimetics. ?-adrenergic blockers can inhibit the effect of formoterol. Increased risk of arrhythmias in patients receiving concomitant anaesthesia with halogenated hydrocarbons.
