converting enzyme) inhibitors-Angiotensin
converting enzyme inhibitors are used to treat high blood pressure. They
cause the blood vessels to relax and become larger and, as a result, blood
pressure is lowered. When blood pressure is reduced, the heart has an easier
time pumping blood. This is especially beneficial when the heart is
failing. ACE inhibitors also cause the process of hypertensive- and
diabetes-related kidney diseases to slow down and prevent early deaths
associated with high blood pressure. ACE inhibitors cannot be taken during
pregnancy since they may cause birth defects. Generic ACE inhibitors are

Tylenol)-A pain reliever and
fever reducer. The exact mechanism of action of acetaminophen is not

is, by requiring a greater amount of pain to develop before
What is medical marijuana?
The term medical marijuana refers to using the whole, unprocessed marijuana plant or its basic extracts to treat symptoms of illness and other conditions. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not recognized or approved the marijuana plant as medicine.
However, scientific study of the chemicals in marijuana, called cannabinoids, has led to two FDA-approved medications that contain cannabinoid chemicals in pill form. Continued research may lead to more medications.
Because the marijuana plant contains chemicals that may help treat a range of illnesses and symptoms, many people argue that it should be legal for medical purposes. In fact, a growing number of states have legalized marijuana for medical use.
Why isn’t the marijuana plant an FDA-approved medicine?
The FDA requires carefully conducted studies (clinical trials) in hundreds to thousands of human subjects to determine the benefits and risks of a possible medication. So

CYTOCHROME P450 DRUG INTERACTION TABLE
This table is designed as a hypothesis testing, teaching and reference tool for physicians and researchers interested in drug interactions that are the result of competition for, or effects on the human cytochrome P450 system.
The table contains lists of drugs in columns under the designation of specific cytochrome P450 isoforms. A drug appears in a column if there is published evidence that it is metabolized, at least in part, via that isoform. It does not necessarily follow that the isoform is the principal metabolic pathway in vivo, or that alterations in the rate of the metabolic reaction catalyzed by that isoform will have large effects on the pharmacokinetics of the drug.
