Abstract

Therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) is an extracorporeal process commonly used in clinical medicine for the treatment of a variety of neurological, renal, hematological, dermatological, and other diseases. Inherent to the procedure, patients’ plasma removal may lead to the extraction of drugs they are concurrently receiving. This review discusses the published literature assessing TPE's influence on different drug classes’ disposition and, when applicable, sets forth management recommendations in cases where the drugs are used at the usual doses and in cases of drug overdose.
