There are several situations in which the hepatic metabolism of drugs may differ from that expected, resulting in possibly compromised efficacy or increased adverse effects. These situations are: When patients are slow or rapid metabolizers; when patients receive co-therapy with metabolic enzyme inducers or inhibitors; and when patients have impaired liver function. This article considers anxiolytic, antidepressant, antipsychotic, mood stabilizer, anticonvulsant, and anti-dementia drugs that are useful in such situations. A few metabolic drug interactions are briefly discussed.​
