An interaction record in the Drug Interactions module contains a description of the interaction, what could be expected if there is an interaction, severity of the interaction, strength of the supporting evidence and precautions needed. This helps the healthcare professional and, eventually, the patient to avoid treatment failures, adverse effects and toxicities that could be life threatening.
