The clinical literature suggests that approximately 7–10% of Caucasians are slow metabolizers through CYP2D6 and toxic levels of imipramine, desipramine, and other agents metabolized via this pathway may result from standard therapeutic doses. Poor metabolizers of drugs that utilize the CYP2C19 may also develop adverse effects at standard doses. Although the SSRI have a large therapeutic index, so that most patients are able to tolerate wide fluctuations in plasma levels due to pharmacokinetic interactions, several are potent inhibitors of the CYP450 system (fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, paroxetine) and can affect toxicity of coadministered drugs that are metabolized via this system.
