SCHUTZ, V.; DOPICO DA SILVA, L.; PRACA, B.F.M.  and  DOS SANTOS, M.E.R.. Revisión sobre la interacción entre fármacos y nutrición enteral. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.22. ISSN 1695-6141.

Article on the drug administration of concomitant enteral nutrition. Objective: To find the available evidence in the literature that addresses the issue of drug interaction and enteral nutrition administered by tube. Methodology: review that used data from electronic databases. Results: 62 articles were found and seven were selected. Discussion: The classes of drug were antiepileptics (43%), antibiotics (43%) and anticoagulants (14%). The class that has most risk of interaction with enteral nutrition was that of antiepileptics, especially with phenytoin. Antibiotics showed no significant decreases in serum and warfarin, the only anticoagulant mentioned, also presented a risk of interaction with enteral nutrition. Conclusion: it is necessary to develop initiatives such as the habit of washing the probe, stopping the enteral feeding, monitoring laboratory tests to prevent possible interactions between drugs and enteral nutrition.

Keywords : Drug; Enteral nutrition; Nursing.
