Hot Exam Topic – Drug-Drug Interactions
A crucial ABPN exam focus is drug-drug interactions (DDI’s). This focus is present on many of the exams, including the Psychiatry Part 1 Exam and the new Psychiatry Certification Exam and, to a lesser extent, the Part 2 Oral Exams; as well as on the various subspecialty exams. Here I review the most common DDIs of carbamazepine, which is an exam favorite. I will follow up in upcoming posts with a presentation of other meds that are popular exam topics.
