    I just wanna share some information with you all.

    My doctor suggested that one should be careful to take Sudafed, if you are taking any of the following:

    Beta-blockers (acebutolol, atenolol , betaxolol , bisoprolol , carteolol , labetalol , metoprolol , nadolol , oxprenolol , penbutolol [e.g., Levatol], pindolol [e.g., Visken], propranolol [e.g., Inderal], sotalol [e.g., Sotacor], timolol [e.g., Blocadren])?Pseudoephedrine may decrease the effect of these medicines; also, taking pseudoephedrine with beta-blockers may increase the chance of side effects.
