Abstract

DRUG INTERACTION

Dr. Shamna M. S.* and Dr. Deepu S.

ABSTRACT

An increasing number of drug related problems are caused by drug interactions. As a basis a drug interaction is a situation in which the effects of one drug are altered by the prior or concurrent administration of another drug. The survey was conducted in a community pharmacy situated in Ernakulam district, Kerala after getting a written consent from the patient. The study prescriptions comprised 50% pharmacokinetic interactions and 50% pharmaco-dynamic interactions. Drug interactions can have profound influence on the success of drug treatment and on the side effect profiles of many drugs. The clinical significance of drug interactions can be variable. Clinical Pharmacists in every practice setting need to be vigilant in monitoring for potential drug interactions and advising patients regarding foods or beverages to avoid when taking certain medications.

Keywords: Drug Interactions, Survey on Interaction of Drugs, Pharmacokinetic Interactions, Pharmacodyanamic Interactions.
