Drug Interactions in Chemotherapy
There are few topics more calculated to cause anxiety among doctors than that of drug interaction. Yet, considering the frequency of multiple drug prescription and even multiple drug consumption, true drug interactions are remarkably uncommon and interactions of serious consequence rare. A study of such events does, however, assist our understanding of the principles of drug action in man and may the re fore, help us to use our therapeutic armamentarium more wisely and more effectively. A theoretical approach to the problems involved is therefore justified.
