I'm not sure how to proceed here because I have a specific need. A family member has had a mental illness for many years and has taken medication for that period. However, she has been found to have a number of physical symptoms including polycystic ovary syndrome, diabetes, thyroid imbalance, obesity. All these may have been the side-effects of the drugs ahe has taken. Monitoring is the keyword. And monitoring is still a tricky undertaking because it is difficult to measure symptoms and as the number of drugs proliferates so does the assessment of interaction and the regulation of dosage.
what could be done to extract the shared idea about interaction in different sciences? Pe3 06:49, 18 May 2005 (UTC)
how would you feel about merging this article with the article about interactivity? Pe3 08:12, 18 May 2005 (UTC)
Maybe a disambiguation page would be a good thing. User:smoe 01/06
I agree that the 'Interaction' topic desperately needs disambiguation. I propose the organizational structure to the right for a disambiguation page: Please post your ideas/suggestions/concerns about disambiguating this topic. --DanSoper 08:19, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
In the interaction in medicine part of article there is talk about an "additive interaction", which is explained as the effect of the drugs combined is equal to the sum of the individual effects of the drugs. In my understanding, that would be the case if there were no interaction between the drugs. This in contrast with synergy and antagonism, where indeed there is interaction between the drugs, leading to a combined effect which is less (antagonism) or more (synergy) than the sum of the individual effects. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 10:24, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
