I've read on this publication that every drug that induces CYP3A can reduce the effectiveness of clarithromycin. Clarithromycin inhibits CYP3A.

But it does not say anything about the opposite situation: does a low concentration of CYP3A increase the effect of clarithromycin?

This research shows how DHA can inhibit CYP3A.

Now the final question is: does a high concentration of DHA increase the effect of clarithromycin?
