When syrapathomimaf no am gives to patients receiving monoamine soidase (MAO) inhibitsra, hypertensive reactions, including hypertensive crises may scour. The 
antihypertensive effects of mathyldopa, macamylamrne, reserpine and varatmm alkaloids may be reduced by sympathomimetics. Bats-adrenergic blocking agents may also 
interact with nympathomimetico. Increased ectopic pacemaker activity can occur when pueudoepheddna is used concomitanfy with digitalis. Antacids increase the rate of 
pseudoepheddneabsorpton; kaolin decreases it
