Drug interaction alerts are extremely common, but which ones are clinically important? This activity will educate pharmacy technicians on common drug interactions involving both prescription and over-the-counter medications. Boost your knowledge of which medications to watch for and hear strategies on handling a drug interaction alert to apply in your practice setting!
Upon successful completion of this knowledge-based CPE activity, pharmacy technicians should be able to:
1. Identify medications that commonly interact with other agents.
2. Recall medications that may adversely affect certain conditions or disease states.
3. Determine when a drug interaction requires intervention from a pharmacist.
