About the webinar: Considering drug-drug interactions is key to selecting the safest and most efficacious combinations of analgesic drug classes and adjuvants (e.g., antidepressants, anticonvulsants). In order to appropriately identify drug-drug interactions, it is essential that clinicians understand the relevant common mechanisms for these, in particular those mediated by the cytochrome P450 (CYP450) system and P-glycoprotein. Pharmacogenetic differences among patients can also impact efficacy, drug interactions, and ability to tolerate medications. This webinar will describe opioid and non-opioid pharmacokinetics and drug-drug interactions and their impact on patient analgesia. Adverse effects when combining analgesics will be further explored through cases studies.

Educational objectives:

  • Classify cytochrome P450 (CYP450) system nomenclature and describe role of CYP450 and p-glycoprotein in pharmacokinetics.
  • Recognize key CYP450 mediated drug-drug interactions.
  • Identify potential drug-drug interactions and important considerations when prescribing various analgesic classes and adjuvants.
