Re: We already know that cyclosporine and statins do not mix, if I am not mistaken.
You are correct! In addition... Statins (specifically Lipitor) should not be used with the following medications because very serious, possibly fatal, interactions may occur: certain azole antifungals (e.g., itraconazole, ketoconazole), certain macrolide antibiotics (e.g., clarithromycin, erythromycin, troleandomycin), nefazodone, telithromycin.
For sometime I've been aware of 'Pharmacogenetics' (drug metabolism)... most don't understand the significance of CYP3A4 (or CYP2D6, etc) or cytochrome P450 (substrates) in drug package inserts. I list several articles at [http://www.freewebs.com/stopped_our_statins/drugmetabolism.htm]
BUT just came across this article... very interesting... 'Role of P-glycoprotein in Statin Drug Interactions'
