AIDS Home > More Products That React With Reyataz

Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs)
PPIs can decrease the level of Reyataz in your blood, potentially making it less effective. You may (or may not) be able to combine a PPI with Reyataz, depending on several factors (see Reyataz Dosage).
Combining salmeterol with Reyataz may increase the risk of serious side effects of salmeterol, especially heart problems. Check with your healthcare provider before combining such medications. In general, these medications should not be combined.
Seizure Medications
Some seizure medications can decrease the level of Reyataz in your blood, perhaps making it less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before taking Reyataz with a seizure medication.
Additionally, Reyataz can also affect the level of the seizure medication in the bloodstream, making it higher (for carbamazepine) or lower (for phenytoin, phenobarbital, or lamotrigine). Check with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
Some Statin Medications
Reyataz should never be combined with lovastatin or simvastatin, due to the risk of dangerous side effects. Since Reyataz may increase the level of atorvastatin or rosuvastatin in your blood, your healthcare provider may recommend a lower dose of these statins.
St. John's Wort
Because St. John's wort can greatly reduce the level of Reyataz in your blood, these substances should never be taken together.
Tenofovir (Viread)
Taking tenofovir with Reyataz can increase the level of tenofovir and decrease the level of Reyataz in your blood. This combination of medications should always be used along with ritonavir (Norvir®) to increase the level of Reyataz in the blood.
