  • Polypharmacy is common in psychiatry. Usage of cognitive enhancers is increasing in the psychiatric population. Many clinicians are not familiar with these new psychoactive compounds. This paper reviews the potential drug–drug interactions when these cognitive enhancers are used together with psychotropic drugs and their confounding effects on diagnosis and clinical management.
