Drug-drug interactions in pediatric psychopharmacology.
Serious consequences caused by drug-drug interactions continue to plague contemporary pharmacotherapy. The possibility of a drug-drug interaction should be suspected anytime a new or unexpected effect occurs that complicates the clinical management of a patient in the setting where the patient is receiving more than one drug. In this article, the authors address the mechanisms of pharmacokinetic-based drug-drug interactions focusing on important interactions that may occur with the common medications a pediatrician may prescribe to the child receiving psychoactive medication(s) prescribed by a child psychiatrist.
