Drug Interaction Classification
These classifications are only a guideline. The relevance of a particular drug interaction to a specific individual is difficult to determine. Always consult your healthcare provider before starting or stopping any medication. Major interactions are highly clinically significant and should be avoided; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit. Moderate interactions are moderately clinically significant and usually should be avoided; use it only under special circumstances. Minor interactions are minimally clinically significant and can be minimized by assessing risk and considering an alternative drug, taking steps to circumvent the interaction risk, or instituting a monitoring plan. Unknown interactions have no interaction information available.
