AIDS Home > More Medications That Interfere With Reyataz

Certain Benzodiazepines
Reyataz should not be combined with midazolam or triazolam, due to the risk of life-threatening reactions.
 
Certain Calcium Channel Blockers
Reyataz may increase the level of calcium channel blockers in your blood, possibly increasing the risk of side effects. Combining Reyataz with certain calcium channel blockers may also affect your heart rhythm. Your healthcare provider may need to lower the dose of your calcium channel blocker if you are taking both of these medications.
 
Colchicine
Reyataz may increase the level of colchicine in your blood. Your healthcare provider may need to lower your colchicine dosage while you are taking Reyataz.
  
Didanosine (Videx)
Reyataz and didanosine products should not be taken at the same time. Be sure to take these products at different times of the day.
 
Efavirenz (Sustiva)
Efavirenz can lower the level of Reyataz in your blood, possibly making it less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to adjust your dose of these medications (see Reyataz Dosage) to prevent drug interactions from occurring. In some situations, this combination is not recommended.
 
Ergot Medications
Reyataz should not be combined with ergot medications, due to the risk of dangerous side effects.
 
Fluticasone or Combination Medications That Contain Fluticasone
Reyataz may increase the level of fluticasone in your blood. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
H2 Blockers
Taking an H2 blocker with Reyataz can decrease the level of Reyataz in your blood. Check with your healthcare provider before taking Reyataz with an H2 blocker (including non-prescription versions).
There are specific recommendations available, depending on several factors (see Reyataz Dosage).
