Identifying high-risk medication: a systematic literature review.

Saedder EA, Brock B, Nielsen LP, Bonnerup DK, Lisby M. Euro J Clin Pharmacol. 2014;70:637-645.

This systematic review identified seven medication classes associated with the most severe medication errors: methotrexate, warfarin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, digoxin, opioids, aspirin, and beta-blockers. The authors suggest that focusing on these medication classes will reduce morbidity and mortality due to adverse drug events, a departure from the commonly advocated universal medication safety recommendations.
