Precautions and Warnings With Mirabegron

Specific Mirabegron Precautions and Warnings

Some warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to taking this drug include the following:
 
  • Mirabegron may increase your blood pressure. Your healthcare provider will periodically check your blood pressure during treatment, especially if you already have hypertension or are taking blood pressure medicines. This medication is not recommended for use in people with severe, uncontrolled hypertension.
 
  • People who have bladder outlet obstruction (which could be caused by BPH, bladder tumors, or other bladder problems) may have an increased risk for not being able to empty their bladder (known as urinary retention) when taking this medicine. People who take other medicines to treat an overactive bladder may also have a greater risk for urinary retention (see Drug Interactions With Mirabegron). Let your healthcare provider know right away if you have difficulty emptying your bladder during mirabegron treatment.
 
  • The kidneys and liver help to remove mirabegron from your body. This medication is not recommended for use in people with severe liver disease or end-stage renal (kidney) disease. People with moderate liver disease or severe kidney disease may need lower doses.
 
 
  • Mirabegron is a pregnancy Category C medication. This means that it may not be safe for use during pregnancy, although the full risks are currently unknown (see Myrbetriq and Pregnancy).
 
  • It is unknown if mirabegron passes through breast milk. Therefore, if you are breastfeeding or plan to start, discuss this with your healthcare provider prior to taking the drug (see Myrbetriq and Breastfeeding).
