Poly (Want a) Pharmacy: A Review of Pain Medication Interactions
Grandma, Grandpa, Mom, Dad, Uncle Phil, Aunt Abby, Neighbor Joe, any patient, every patient, all have potential drug interaction concerns. With multiple drug interaction review databases available, and all with varying explanations for the same drug interactions, we as healthcare professionals are absolutely needed in order to decipher and explain tangible medication concerns. In this lively discussion, we will review a multitude of CYP450, pharmacogenetic, transporter, and overlapping sedative drug interactions, along with concerning resultant symptoms, such as the infamous “Serotonin Syndrome”, relevant to patient care. Any licensed healthcare professional with a pulse is aware of various drug interactions such as opioids and benzos, but just how does one handle a patient scenario involving the two, or if there’s even more sedatives or anticholinergics being utilized? Join us for a dynamic discussion on what to do with our hands and voices when it comes to many common and concerning drug interactions.
