[Medicinal Complex Therapy - Drug Interaction of Valproate and Dipyrone].
Authors: Kliem A, Green K, Mattern M Abstract The clinical relevance of the drug interaction between valproic acid and dipyrone is presented in the context of a gerontopsychiatric case. It is assumed that dipyrone at a dose of 4 g/d has a relevant influence on the valproate level and the associated clinical outcome. This may be due to a possible induction of CYP2B6 and increased valproate metabolism. In the case of a treatment of valproate combined with dipyrone, a close monitoring of the valproate level is recommended.

However, two fifths of the patients still received prescriptions for long-term intake or in higher doses. It remains unclear to what extent private prescriptions are used for inappropriate or long-term prescriptions of benzodiazepines and z-drugs.

Authors: Wilkening A, Palm U Abstract Systemic infections are known to alter the metabolism of various drugs via inhibition of the cytochrome P450 family. Here, we report the cases of two patients with schizophrenic psychosis and highly elevated clozapine levels during pulmonary systemic infection, however without experiencing side effects. After antibiotic treatment and temporary reduction of clozapine dosage blood levels of clozapine normalized within a few days. These cases show that clozapine levels may be highly elevated without necessarily causing side effects and that intensified pharmacovigilance should be ...
