Drug rep came to town today peddling his drug with the words, "This drug does not have ANY drug interactions." "None?" I said in disbelief processing the information.
He shook his head and smiled while getting my name to write down for the luncheon he was giving.
"NO drug interactions?" I just can't hardly believe in a statement like that.
"No drug interactions and only about 50% protein bound."
Wow. First thing I did was go research the drug. Oh yeah. It interacts with metoprolol for one. Raises the AUC of metoprolol by 50%. Maybe he got his 50% data memorized wrong. Here's the list Mr. Drug Rep:
Drugs that act on the brain, including antidepressants, painkillers, sedatives, and tranquilizers
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen
Never say "My drug has no drug interactions." That's just not gonna fly.
