I was just wondering about the specific "problem" of serum protein binding by medications and how this presents an entirely different "interaction" phenomenon from the kind you typically read about regarding liver enzymes and elimination. From what I remember I think the serum protein binding is what creates a significant interaction between Depakote and Lamictal. I was just curious if there were any other meds (off the top of your head), which could interact in this manner. Actually, I'm a little worn out from "trying" different meds. At this point, I'm more interested in avoiding any unintended interactions with the meds I do take (Depakote and clonazepam). Thanks for your help!
