In this article the medications that have been shown to increase rates of drug-induced liver injury in patients with cirrhosis and the important drug-drug interactions in recipients of liver transplantation are reviewed. In general, the risk of drug-induced liver injury in patients with cirrhosis does not seem to be higher when compared with the noncirrhotic population. There are, however, 2 classes of agents that have been implicated-medications used to treat tuberculosis and medications used to treat human immunodeficiency virus infection. However, with careful monitoring, even significant interactions can be effectively managed.
