What are the Interactions between Psychiatric Medications and Psychoactive Drugs?

Jul 22, 2016

The Queensland Network of Alcohol and Other Drug Agencies (QNADA) has developed a series of resources that highlight the possible interactions between psychiatric medications and common psychoactive drugs.  There are fact sheets designed for clients, as well as a set of fact sheets designed for health professionals.  The fact sheets cover all the major psychiatric medications including atypical antipsychotics, mood stabilisers, SSRIs and more, along with alcohol, cannabis, hallucinogens, nicotine, opioids and stimulants.  This resource will come in very handy for anyone working with clients who may combine substances with their psychiatric medications.
