Prevalence of adverse drug combinations in a large post-mortem toxicology database.

This study examined more than 37,000 post-mortem cases and discovered that 0.71% were associated with potentially severe drug–drug interactions. The most common medications implicated were those causing serotonin syndrome and combinations of atrioventricular nodal agents (e.g., beta blockers and calcium-channel blockers).
