In this research drug interactions of anti-depressant drugs in Anzali in 2000 were evaluated. This descriptive study was conducted on 13692 regular, randomly sampled insured prescriptions. Drug interactions were studied based on the ratings of Drug Interaction Facts’ book. 21.9% of prescriptions had at least one anti-depressant drug (61.2% in women and 38.8% in men). Drug interaction was observed in 22.4% of prescriptions and type of interaction from first degree to fifth was 14.86, 33.95, 13.49, 17.98 and 19.72 percent respectively. Psychologists and neurologists (42.1%), other specialists (21.9%) and general physicians (36%) prescribed these prescriptions. The most drug interaction was observed in other specialists’ prescriptions. The mean number of drugs were 3.481.13 in prescriptions.
