A drug Interactionis considered the combination of two or more drugs, or drugs consumption habits or with certain lifestyles, producing adverse or unwanted effects.We exclude as interaction the combination of drugs with the same pharmacological action.In theg-Nomic® Pharmacogenetics softwarewe selected the clinically relevant interactions, in particular the interactions with a value of 1, 2 or 3 according to the Hansten and Horn classification (Hansten PD, Horn JR.Management clinically important drug interactions. Louis: Facts and Comparisons, 2003), or interactions without an assigned value, but according to the criteria of Hansten and Horn correspond to 1, 2 or 3. Exceptionally may consist interactions outside these criteria, if its frequency or other reason has been considered to be beneficial to consider.
