A drug-drug interaction (DDI) occurs when two (or more) drugs are administered concomitantly and another one, with the result of either increasing or decreasing the effect of the object drug, or producing a new and unanticipated effect (1), alters the pharmacological effects of one drug. Drug-Drug Interactions are considered to be beneficial or harmful and depend on several factors related to the type of medication, the patient or the conditions under which the medication is used (2).
