Some UGT substrates, inducers, and inhibitors are listed in the appendix to this chapter. Metabolic drug interactions are most likely to occur in three situations: when an interacting drug (inhibitor or inducer) is added to an existing critical substrate drug; when an interacting drug is withdrawn from a dosing regimen containing a substrate drug; or when a substrate drug is added to an existing regimen containing an interacting drug. The addition of an interacting drug to a medication regimen containing a substrate drug at steady-state levels will dramatically alter substrate drug levels, possibly resulting in toxicity (addition of an inhibitor) or loss of therapeutic effect (addition of an inducer).

Pharmacokinetic Drug Interactions The majority of drugs are substrates for metabolism by one or more CYP enzymes. The most common pharmacokinetic drug–drug interaction involves changes in the CYP-mediated metabolism of the substrate drug by an interacting drug. The interacting drug may be either an inducer or an inhibitor of the specific CYP enzymes involved in the substrate drug’s metabolism. In the presence of an inducer, CYP enzyme activity and the rate of metabolism of the substrate is increased.
