  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  Due to the risk of arrhythmias, isoprenaline should not be used with other potent beta1 agonists such as adrenaline. .Interactions may also occur between sympathomimetics and drugs that have similar or opposing effects through non-adrenergic mechanisms. Sympathomimetics with central actions may potentiate the effects of CNS stimulants, while the vasoconstrictor and pressor effects of alpha agonists may be enhanced by drugs with similar effects, such as ergot alkaloids or oxytocin. Beta2-mediated hypokalaemia may be potentiated by other drugs that cause potassium loss, including corticosteroids, potassium-depleting diuretics, and aminophylline or theophylline; patients given high doses of beta2 agonists with such drugs should have their plasma- potassium concentration monitored. Hypokalaemia may also contribute to the increased susceptibility to cardiac arrhythmias caused by digoxin and other cardiac glycosides. ,

►  Contraindication : angina pectoris,
Ref :-   Book : Martindale    Page : 436   Edition : 37,
  ►  Mechanism of Action :   Isoprenaline is a sympathomimetic that acts almost exclusively on beta-adrenergic receptors. It has a powerful stimulating action on the heart and increases cardiac output, excitability, and rate; it also causes peripheral vasodilatation and produces a fall in diastolic blood pressure and usually maintains or slightly increases systolic blood pressure,
