Drug Interactions | 5 Tips You Should Do To Avoid Them

Оценок: 87 | Просмотров: 8026
Drug or medication interactions can happen to anyone taking medicines. This weeks video is about why drugs interact and avoiding them. All my patients seem to know the rule about not drinking when you're on antibiotics - the trouble is, it isn't a rule! In fact, it's safe to drink some alcohol when you're taking most kinds of antibiotics (the antibiotic you should never drink with is metronidazole, also known as Flagyl®). Yet there are many possible interactions between commonly prescribed medicines with other medicines, supplements and even food that very few people seem to have heard of. So this weeks video will explain why they happen, and what everyone should do to avoid them. This video was sponsored by Dr Fox (Online Doctor & Pharmacy): https://www.doctorfox.co.uk HOW TO MINIMISE THE RISK OF INTERACTIONS: It isn't realistic to expect patients to memorise every possible interaction for every medication. But the following tips can go a long way in reducing problems: 1. Know why you are taking each medication Drug names are often hard to pronounce, difficult to remember, and easy to mix up. An error when you list your drugs could mean a potential interaction will go unnoticed. However, if you tell a health care professional that you're taking a medication followed by why you take it, he or she is more likely to realise what medication you take. 2. Know how to take the drug It's important to learn whether to take your medication with food, on an empty stomach or to avoid certain types of food at the same time you take the medication. If you’re not taking the medication correctly it can reduce the absorption and effectiveness or even cause irritation of your stomach lining. 3. Pharmacies don't have access to your medical records Let your pharmacy know all the medication you take. Pharmacies don’t have access to your medical records when dispensing. So if you’ve been started on any new medication let the pharmacist know when they give you your medication. They can then give you any useful tips that will help you get the most out of your medicines 4. Supplements, herbal remedies and over the counter medicines also interact with medication. Some of the most serious drug interactions involve prescription medications and supplements or herbal remedies. If you're purchasing these then it's likely that your healthcare professional will not be aware you are taking them. Always include these in your medication list when giving a medication history. 5. Talk to your pharmacist I always ask patients to bring in all their medicines, so either a list or actually bring them into the pharmacy. This includes the prescribed medicines, over the counter medicines, supplements, herbal remedies, creams....basically everything. Your pharmacist can then sit down with you, look at them and identify any potential interactions between them. They can then give you the best advice to get the most out of your medication. 6. Alcohol and its interaction with medication Whether you can drink alcohol while on medication depends entirely on what medication you’ve been prescribed. The following link has some really useful detailed information which I'd highly recommend everyone to read. https://www.drinkaware.co.uk/alcohol-facts/health-effects-of-alcohol/lifestyle/is-it-ok-to-drink-while-on-medication/ LINK REFERENCES IN VIDEO: To check interactions between medicines: https://www.drugs.com/drug_interactions.html To find out more information about a medicine or its patient information leaflet: https://www.medicines.org.uk/emc Want to see more videos about everything health and pharmacy?

Very important video because there is a lot of misinformation on the internet, especially in relation to alternative meds and orthodox meds. Not everything "natural" is harmless for those who take regular daily meds. Thanks. I wish all the pharmacists are so dedicated like you. :)

I remember some time ago having aspirin an niacin and got huge heat rush. A friend told me about niacin so I didn't think of aspirin at all. Took a cab, it was in swiss cottage London, and the young doctor didn't know what it was. I didn't even think of mentioning aspirin or niacin. So she said to come back if it doesnt pass by tomorrow. Waste of cab fair. So I rang a good friend of mine who is pharma rep and she just laughed. Explained about niacin large dose and aspirin. Why doctors dont read research and why they dont try to find out about natural supplement interactions is beyond me.

I’ve had one of my drugs interact with my epilepsy meds. I have drug induced lupus too which started with carbamazapine and the then I was put on keppra the one with the funny name, then as keppra doesn’t control my seizures we tried lamotragine and guesse what, that set my lupus off. This time though it not only had my skin and hair, it got to my joints and immune system so one steroid injection later to give the joint pain a good kicking and I’m pain free and it surpresses my immune system too. So I have to be careful with drugs anyway.

Hi Abraham, liking the videos! I'm a pharmacist and now can access new patient information via SCR so is useful when conducting MUR /NMS services to highlight this point and reduce the risk of interactions:) keep up the good work
