    Anna Koski
    Laboratory of Toxicology, Department of Forensic Medicine, University of Helsinki, Finland
    Alcohol Clin Exp Res 26:956-9. 2002
    ..Postmortem forensic toxicology frequently finds alcohol both alone and in combination with drugs. Although benzodiazepines are generally considered safe, they are considered dangerous with alcohol...
  2. ncbi request reprint Interaction of alcohol and drugs in fatal poisonings
    Anna Koski
    Laboratory of Toxicology, Department of Forensic Medicine, FIN 00014, University of Helsinki, Finland
    Hum Exp Toxicol 22:281-7. 2003
    ..The other drugs had relatively low FTIs. The results reflect not only the acute toxicity of a given drug-alcohol combination but also the manners of use and abuse of these drugs...

    Anna Koski
    Laboratory of Toxicology, Department of Forensic Medicine, P O Box 40, 00014 University of Helsinki, Finland
    Int J Legal Med 119:344-8. 2005
    ..The SSRIs appear to present a low risk of fatal poisoning when taken alone or in combination with alcohol, whereas venlafaxine is associated with an elevated risk...

    A Koski
    Department of Forensic Medicine, Laboratory of Toxicology, University of Helsinki, Finland

    Anna Koski
    Department of Forensic Medicine, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland
