CphT Rx Study Drug Drug Interaction     Last updated on 2010     1     29, a full moon day;

your direction is:

Adverse drug reaction <> Drug diet interaction <> Drug drug interaction;

Induction, think that number 1 has been proved as positive integer, so its decimal points such as .414 will also be positive number, to be 1.414 ... ; Time slices become smaller and smaller, so .414 becomes .414213562373095048 ... if calculating sqrt of 2; Induction is similar to such concept of number 213562373095048 ... ; Number of enzymes increase but within time + space constraint, aka concentration of metabolizing enzymes increase in liver; Process of drug which causes such existence is called Enzyme Induction; Due to time + space constraint, enzyme induction is dose related; Available enzyme inducers are: Carbamazepine, Phenytoin, Rifampin, ... [ Time slices may become larger and larger ... to be concentration decreases ... but 1 whole number to be the most i.e. 1.0 ];

Metabolism, think that turtle eggs may become turtle and turtle eggs again, by rejoining interaction ... in M Theory; Enzyme induction and enzyme inhibition are metabolism; Concerning Drug-Drug interaction, drugs' metabolizing enzymes must be the same [think that duck eggs cannot become turtle], and in common, liver metabolizes drug; The cause of rejoining interaction, so called plasma concentration increases; Must allow (2*3) (3*2) (2*3) (3*2) = 24 hours [ coexistence of day + night is at least required to inhibit], because rejoining interaction essentially requires time [ Time . Space . Action ]; So, Enzyme Inhibition can be understood; Available enzyme inhibitors are: Allopurinol, Cimetidine, Erythromycin, ... ;
