Because of potential interference of hawthorn with the polyclonal antibody-based serum digoxin immunoassay and competition between hawthorn and digoxin for possible binding to the same site of Na, K adenosine triphosphatase, thus interacting pharmacodynamically with digoxin, it is advisable that a patient receiving digoxin should not take hawthorn.
To maintain the activity of the fluoroquinolone class, clinicians need to implement an evidence-based approach to antimicrobial selection, particularly a strategy in which the most pharmacodynamically potent fluoroquinolone is matched, on an empiric basis when required, to anticipated bacterial pathogens.
