Four new comedications have been added to the interaction checker and takes the total number of comedications on the website to ~730.
The new comedications and their classes are shown below. An update to the iChart app is available and the PDF files have been updated for the Overview of Interactions in the Prescribing Resources section of the website.
- Argatroban (Anticoagulants, anti-platelets and fibrinolytics)
- Avanafil (Erectile dysfunction agents)
- Calcium folinate (Other)
- Piperaquine (Antiprotozoal)
An existing comedication, folic acid, has been split into two separate entries - folic acid (alone) and folic acid (in multivitamins). This is to make it clearer when an interaction may occur due to the presence of cations in the preparation rather than with folic acid itself.
