Warfarin is commonly involved in drug-related hospital admissions. The drug is most commonly prescribed to elderly patients in whom polypharmacy is common and, when administered in combination with other drugs such as NSAIDs, aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) or macrolide antibacterials, is associated with increased bleeding risk. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of prescriptions that might give rise to clinically relevant drug-drug interactions in a warfarinized population.
