  1. Thanks for the great lecture series. I have been playing them as I sleep. Perhaps a good topic would be drug-drug interactions in psychiatry, taking about some that doctors often don't know about. Such as how certain neuroleptics can raise levels of a specific SSRI, as I recall. Or how you cannot take Depakote with Suboxone as it inactivates the Suboxone.
