Abstract:
Objectives: To evaluate the literature with respect to drug-drug interactions of the hydroxymethylglutaryl CoA reductase inhibitors atorvastatin, fluvastatin, lovastatin, pitavastitin, pravastatin, simvastatin, and rosuvastatin with warfarin. Methods: This descriptive retrospective study identified articles reporting on each drug-drug interaction from the online databases PubMed (1970 – February 2012) and the drug compendia Micromedex and Facts & Comparisons. The studies included in this investigation were primary literature reports, written in English with human subjects. All studies included were evaluated using the van Roon 5-point quality of evidence scale developed in the Netherlands to assess drug-drug interactions. This scale rates the study type from lowest to highest quality, from zero to four. Case-reports were evaluated using the Drug Interaction Probability Scale (DIPS). The DIPS tool uses 10 questions to evaluate the probability that an adverse event is caused by a drug-drug interaction. Results: Twenty studies met the inclusion criteria. One study involved atorvastatin, four for fluvastatin, three for lovastatin, 2 for pitavastatin, 1 for pravastatin, 5 for rosuvastatin, and 6 for simvastatin. The mean van Roon quality of evidence score was 2.1+/- 0.74, the mean score for atorvastatin, pitavastatin, and pravastatin was 3, with the mean score of fluvastatin, lovastatin, rosuvastatin, and simvastatin was 2. 70% of the literature reviewed were case-reports or letters. Conclusions: The studies and reports supporting HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors and warfarin drug-drug interactions are most commonly case-reports and are of low quality and quantity.
