Full Prescribing Info
Norepinephrine should be used with extreme caution in patients receiving monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) or antidepressants of the triptyline or imipramine types, as it may cause severe, prolonged hypertension. Norepinephrine bitartrate injection contains sodium metabisulphite, a sulphite that may cause allergic-type reactions including anaphylactic symptoms and life-threatening or less severe asthmatic episodes in certain susceptible people. The overall prevalence of sulphite sensitivity in the general population is unknown. Sulphite sensitivity is seen more frequently in asthmatic than in non-asthmatic people.
