Abstract

With the growing use of specialized nutrition support in patients requiring multiple medications, there is legitimate concern over the potential for pharmacologic-nutritional interactions to reduce the benefits of therapy. This article will first address pharmacotherapeutic effects on nutrition-ie, drug effects on fluid and electrolyte balance, vitamin homeostasis, and gastrointestinal (GI) function-as well as the use of prokinetic drugs to enhance gastric emptying and drugs that cause GI disease (eg, esophagitis, pancreatitis). The ensuing discussion of nutritional aspects of pharmacotherapy will cover physical incompatibilities between drugs and enteral formulas, pharmacokinetic alterations caused by nutrients, and adjunctive use of drugs (eg, growth factors) in specialized nutrition support.
