Because unanticipated drug–drug interactions (DDIs) can result in severe bodily harm, identifying the adverse effects of polypharmacy is one of the most important tasks in human health. Over the past few decades, computational methods for predicting the adverse effects of polypharmacy have been developed.This article presents DPSP, a framework for predicting polypharmacy side effects based on the construction of novel drug features and the application of a deep neural network to predict DDIs. In the first step, a variety of drug information is evaluated, and a feature extraction method and the Jaccard similarity are used to determine similarities between two drugs. By combining these similarities, a novel feature vector is generated for each drug. In the second step, the method predicts DDIs for specific DDI events using a multimodal framework and drug feature vectors. On three benchmark datasets, the performance of DPSP is measured by comparing its results to those of several well-known methods, such as GNN–DDI, MSTE, MDF–SA–DDI, NNPS, DDIMDL, DNN, DeepDDI, KNN, LR, and RF. DPSP outperforms these classification methods based on a variety of classification metrics. The results indicate that the use of diverse drug information is effective and efficient for identifying DDI adverse effects.
