Victoria Hendrick, M.D., on Drug Interactions and Drug Side Effects Specific to Women
The Carlat Psychiatry Report, Volume 3, Number 10, October 2005
Victoria Hendrick, M.D.
Associate Professor of Psychiatry
UCLA School of Medicine and Olive View-UCLA Medical Center
Dr. Hendrick has disclosed that she was/is a member of the speakers bureaus for GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, and has given talks on the reproductive safety of Paxil (GlaxoSmithKline) and Zoloft (Pfizer). Because of these industry relationships, the editors of The Carlat Report have edited the interview in order to resolve any possible faculty conflicts of interest regarding this educational activity.
Dr. Hendrick, thanks for your return visit to the pages of TCR! I’m wondering whether, as a specialist in the psychiatric treatment of women, you can tell us about particular drug interactions that you feel we should be more aware of in treating women.
