Comparative pharmacokinetic profiles of metoprolol and chlorthalidone administered alone or in combination to healthy volunteers



Comparative pharmacokinetic profiles of metoprolol and chlorthalidone administered alone or in combination to healthy volunteers



European Journal of Clinical Pharmacology 24(5): 655-660



A potential pharmacokinetic interaction between the beta-blocking drug, metoprolol, and the diuretic, chlorthalidone, has been investigated in three single or multiple dose studies in healthy volunteers. The pharmacokinetic profile of metoprolol 100 mg was not affected by pretreatment with or co-administration of chlorthalidone 25 mg twice daily. Similarly, the pre-dosing steady-state level of chlorthalidone during chronic treatment and its blood level profile after a single 25 mg dose were not affected by metoprolol. The bioavailabilities of the 2 drugs administered in combination were identical to those observed when each drug was administered alone. These studies demonstrate that there is no pharmacokinetic interaction between metoprolol and chlorthalidone when doses of 100 and 25 mg, respectively, are co-administered twice daily.
