Very helpful.

University of Liverpool's Dept of Pharmacology drug interaction websit is also good for checking interactions, but you need to know generic drug names and drug classes - gives you key info from studies though.

The Body's pages of drug interactions details interactions by drug name, including recreational drugs.
