Create an educational item about dangerous drug interactions. Choose two drugs from different categories of drugs that we have studied thus far in the course that can have a dangerous reaction if taken incorrectly. Research the drugs’ interactions with other drugs, including OTC medications, and alcohol. Please note that you may not choose the same drug that you are using for your medication research paper for this assignment.
For this assignment:
- Create an educational item that describes/displays the dangers associated with the chosen drugs.
- This educational item can be in any format, so be creative. For example, you can create a pamphlet/brochure, a flyer, an infographic, a newsletter, etc. (at least one page)
- Also include a one page summary as to why you chose the drugs and how you would use this educational item in practice. Make sure to cite your sources using APA formatting. You should include at least two scholarly sources.
