(Revised Version) Drugs are routinely combined in anesthesia and pain management to obtain an enhancement of the desired effects. However, a parallel enhancement of the undesired effects might take place as well, resulting in a limited therapeutic usefulness. Therefore, when addressing the question of optimal drug combinations, side effects must be taken into account. We propose a new method to study drug interactions considering also their side effects and to identify optimal drug dosing. The model is consistent with clinical knowledge and can explain previously published experimental results, improving our understanding of the characteristics of drug combinations used in clinical practice.
