She is suffering from respiratory tract infection and her doctor has prescribed a course of clarithromycin for 5 days.
Comment: there is drug interaction between simvastatin and diltizem and between simvastatin and clarithromycin. so my advice to continue the treatment regimen but dose not exceed 40 mg of simvastatin therapy and choose other antibiotic to avoid muscle pain that might happening .
case 2 Drug interaction: a man with history of epilepsy and heavy smoking is admitted to hospital due to acute asthma attack. it was prescribed for him Phenytoin 300 mg and aminophylline 250 mg twice daily by IV infusion slowly.
Comments: plasma concentration of phenytoin may be increased and also clearance of theophylline may be increased. so it is better both monitoring both drugs to avoid some cases.
Case 3 Overdose adverse effects. older patient with severe renal impairment, high cholesterol levels and acute gout flares has prescribed rosuvastation 40 mg, 0.6 mg colchicine.
Comments both drugs increase effects each others by synergism and is not recommended to give high dose rosuvastation with end renal stage.

Comment: lactic acidosis appearance as the prolong usage of this agent and the doctor do not have the desire to add other therapy to manage the high glucose levels.
