Beta Blockers and Orap

Orap® (pimozide) is used in the treatment of motor and verbal tics caused by Tourette syndrome. However, this medicine is not appropriate for some people, including those who are taking certain medications that cause a change in the heart rhythm known as QT prolongation.
 
Because beta blockers are QT-prolonging medications, combining Orap with one of these drugs can increase the risk of a life-threatening arrhythmia. It is generally not recommended to combine Orap with beta blockers or other QT-prolonging drugs.
