Do all drug interactions result in bad outcomes?

The iGuard website identifies potential drug interactions and explains how these interactions affect the medications or the conditions that you have. Not all drug interactions result in a bad outcome. There are situations where doctors prescribe two drugs together even though they may have an interaction. In these cases, the doctor may feel that the benefit of the two treatments outweigh the risk of the drug interaction. iGuard feels that it is important for you to know about your medications and how they may interact with each other. We hope you will take the list of interactions to your doctor and discuss the risks and benefits and your side effects of your medications so that your treatment can be adjusted to meet your concerns.  Treating pain is challenging - you may want to seek help from a pain specialist - these doctors and nurses are experts in this area. You can ask your doctor for referrals or you can look around in your area to see if you can find a pain management center that offers these services.
