10. In HIV medication, they actually use this mechanism on purpose

Most HIV medications are administered with a booster, another drug that depletes the cytochrome p450 so that the medication is not broken down by the liver as quickly. You're not crazy, exploiting this mechanism really is something that doctors and researchers are looking into.

The danger of course with most medications is that you'll end up with too much in the bloodstream, and with some medications this is very dangerous. With other medications, it's not so dangerous.
