Bitter Orange Interactions

Decongestants
Synephrine (one of the components of bitter orange) and many nasal decongestants are chemically related. Taking them together may increase the risk of side effects.

Combining an MAOI with bitter orange can lead to life-threatening reactions. If you take an MAOI, do not take any products that contain bitter orange.
