IDIS Tips and News


Drug Interaction

PDF of this tip

When looking for reports or studies of drug interactions, combine two drug terms with descriptors "DRUG COMBINATION 16" and "DRUG INTERACTION 50."

Drug: "ST JOHN'S WORT" and "ROSUVASTATIN"
Descriptors: "DRUG COMBINATION 16" AND "DRUG INTERACTION 50"

A broader, follow-up search to the one above is to drop the descriptor terms and combine the two drug terms with a free-text search in the title and/or abstract with any pertinent keywords related to the drug interaction.

Drug: "ST JOHN'S WORT" and "ROSUVASTATIN"
Title or Abstract: "interact*"
