Interactions of Atropine Sulphate 6 MG

Interactions with other medicines

  • Atropine sulphate injection decreases absorption rate of mexiletine and ketoconazole due to reduced movement of the digestive tract and of the contents in the tract
  • Effects of atropine may be enhanced if other medicines of a similar mode of action such as phenothiazines, amantadine, antidepressants, some antihistamines are given simultaneously
  • Atropine may reduce the efficiency of medicines given sublingually, such as nitrates, by causing drying in the mouth
  • During anaesthesia, the response of heart rate to atropine may be decreased if the patient is receiving propofol simultaneously because propofol suppresses part of the nervous system in the body
