Accordingly, the pharmacists awareness about drug-drug interaction seems to be very poor and they are generally not well informed about the serious interactions caused as well, they have poor knowledge in communication skills.
They called a drug-drug interaction "clinically significant" if the interaction involved (1) two drugs that are not supposed to be given together, or drugs that are not supposed to be given together without close monitoring, or (2) a drug that requires a dose adjustment (raising or lowering the dose to balance out an interaction with the other drug).
The results of the study demonstrated no significant drug-drug interaction between pitavastatin and warfarin.
Prescription and nonprescription medications were commonly used together, with nearly one in 25 individuals potentially at risk for a major drug-drug interaction, according to results.
The potential for any medication to induce a drug-drug interaction is generally not discovered until the medication has been widely utilized in the real world, further highlighting the need for extensive postmarketing surveillance and reporting of even merely suspicious circumstances with as much detail as possible.
Using the crystal structure of PXR, we may be able to predict these effects and possibly prevent such drug-drug interactions.
The interim virologic response rates from STARTVerso (TM) 4 in HCV/HIV co-infected patients, combined with the drug-drug interaction results of faldaprevir with common HIV medications, are encouraging as we continue toward our goal of developing new HCV treatments for multiple types of patients," said Peter Piliero, MD, vice president, Clinical and Medical Affairs, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Therefore, it is quite unlikely that a drug-drug interaction (apart from digoxin and omeprazole) is responsible for this patient's situation; however, a pharmacokinetic drug interaction is not readily explained since digoxin is primarily removed from the body via renal excretion and is not dependent on hepatic cytochrome P450 as a form of metabolism.
