It relates to the effects that occur during absorption (which can also be adjusted by manipulating certain pharmaceutical properties), distribution, metabolism and excretion. Pharmacokinetic interactions result in changes in the concentration of the drug at its site of action.

This book, written with a definite clinical bias (as the editors and contributors are practising prescribers from a range of disciplines), is designed to be an easily accessible reference for busy prescribers/dispensers who may not have access to, or the time to search, the more comprehensive resources on adverse drug–drug interactions both in print and online.
