drug interaction

interaction of drugs - this change in the pharmacological and pharmacokinetic properties of the drug, while applying it with another drug.This action of drugs may increase or decrease and can also create a "toxic mixture".The following are examples of incompatible products:

«Aspirin" + = increase the toxicity of corticosteroids "Aspirin" (increases the risk of stomach ulcers).

Beta-blockers + antidiabetic = hypoglycemia (possibly up to hypoglycemic coma).


Everyone knows that you can not use a lot of different drugs simultaneously.However, the treatment of certain, especially chronic diseases, with one drug can not be dispensed.For each disease has its own regimens which consist of several components.Each has the means acting on the d
ifferent causes of the disease.

For example, in the treatment of diseases such as gastric ulcer (stomach ulcer), there are several schemes.The first circuit includes means for suppression of gastric secretion ("Omeprazole"), an antibiotic ("Clarithromycin") for bolby with the agent and an antimicrobial agent to prevent the development of pathogenic flora ("Metronidazole").All of them allow you to deal with a complex problem.


Many people, especially the elderly there are several diseases at once.And in the selection of the treatment of each disease is necessary to consider all medications used by the patient.For this to the doctor needs medical card, which spelled out all related illness and prescribed drugs to treat them.It also has taken into account all the side effects and contraindications of drugs.

For example, when the drug is contraindicated in bronchial asthma thinning sputum when you cough - Acetylcysteine ​​("ACC"), the reason for contraindications - the possibility of manifestation of bronchospasm.

How do you know about the compatibility?

first rule should be used drugs only on prescription.He will pick the right combination at the "contentious issue".

Secondly, coming to the pharmacy with a prescription or written recommendation of a doctor, in order to eliminate the error.You can pronounce the name correctly, and in the range of pharmacy are many drugs with similar names, but completely different effect.
Third, to date, on the internet there are many sites where you can find out about compatibility of medicines and even test all possible combinations.
