DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

General Dosing Recommendations:

•REYATAZ Capsules must be taken with food.
•Do not open the capsules.
•The recommended oral dosage of REYATAZ depends on the treatment history of the patient and the use of other coadministered drugs. When coadministered with H2-receptor antagonists or proton-pump inhibitors, dose separation may be required.
•When coadministered with didanosine buffered or enteric-coated formulations, REYATAZ should be given (with food) 2 hours before or 1 hour after didanosine.
•REYATAZ without ritonavir is not recommended for treatment-experienced adult or pediatric patients with prior virologic failure.
•Efficacy and safety of REYATAZ with ritonavir in doses greater than 100 mg once daily have not been established. The use of higher ritonavir doses might alter the safety profile of atazanavir (cardiac effects, hyperbilirubinemia) and, therefore, is not recommended. Prescribers should consult the complete prescribing information for NORVIR® (ritonavir) when using this agent.

Recommended Adult Dosage
Table 1 summarizes the recommended REYATAZ dosing regimen in adults. All REYATAZ dosing regimens are to be administered as a single dose with food.

Table 1: REYATAZ Dosing Regimens
Treatment-Naive Patients

REYATAZ 300 mg with ritonavir 100 mg once daily
-------------------------------------
If unable to tolerate ritonavir:
REYATAZ 400 mg once daily
-------------------------------------
When combined with any of the following:
Tenofovir
H2-receptor antagonist
Proton-pump inhibitor


REYATAZ 300 mg with ritonavir 100 mg once daily

•The H2-receptor antagonist dose should not exceed a dose comparable to famotidine 40 mg twice daily. Administer REYATAZ and ritonavir simultaneously with, and/or at least 10 hours after the H2-receptor antagonist.
•If unable to tolerate ritonavir, administer REYATAZ 400 mg once daily at least 2 hours before and at least 10 hours after the H2-receptor antagonist. No single dose of the H2-receptor antagonist should exceed a dose comparable to famotidine 20 mg and the total daily dose should not exceed a dose comparable to famotidine 40 mg.
•The proton-pump inhibitor dose should not exceed a dose comparable to omeprazole 20 mg daily and must be taken approximately 12 hours prior to REYATAZ and ritonavir.
-------------------------------------
When combined with efavirenz
REYATAZ 400 mg with ritonavir 100 mg once daily

•Efavirenz should be administered on an empty stomach, preferably at bedtime.

Treatment-Experienced Patients

See package insert for pediatric patients and dosing in prenancy.

Renal Impairment
For patients with renal impairment, including those with severe renal impairment who are not managed with hemodialysis, no dose adjustment is required for REYATAZ. Treatment-naive patients with end stage renal disease managed with hemodialysis should receive REYATAZ 300 mg with ritonavir 100 mg. REYATAZ should not be administered to HIV-treatment-experienced patients with end stage renal disease managed with hemodialysis.

Hepatic Impairment
REYATAZ should be used with caution in patients with mild-to-moderate hepatic impairment. For patients with moderate hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class B) who have not experienced prior virologic failure, a dose reduction to 300 mg once daily should be considered. REYATAZ should not be used in patients with severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class C). REYATAZ/ritonavir has not been studied in subjects with hepatic impairment and is not recommended.

Darunavir (Prezista™) top of page

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Adult Patients
PREZISTA must be co-administered with ritonavir to exert its therapeutic effect. Failure to correctly co-administer PREZISTA with ritonavir will result in plasma levels of darunavir that will be insufficient to achieve the desired antiviral effect and will alter some drug interactions.

Patients who have difficulty swallowing PREZISTA tablets can use the 100 mg/mL PREZISTA oral suspension.

Treatment-Naïve Adult Patients
The recommended oral dose of PREZISTA is 800 mg (one 800 mg tablet or 8 mL of the oral suspension) taken with ritonavir 100 mg (one 100 mg tablet/capsule or 1.25 mL of a 80 mg/mL ritonavir oral solution) once daily and with food. An 8 mL darunavir dose should be taken as two 4 mL administrations with the included oral dosing syringe.

ritonavir (Norvir ®)  top of page

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
NORVIR is administered orally. NORVIR tablets should be swallowed whole, and not chewed, broken or crushed. Take NORVIR with meals. Patients may improve the taste of NORVIR oral solution by mixing with chocolate milk, Ensure®, or Advera® within one hour of dosing.

General Dosing Guidelines
Patients who take the 600 mg twice daily soft gel capsule NORVIR dose may experience more gastrointestinal side effects such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain or diarrhea when switching from the soft gel capsule to the tablet formulation because of greater maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) achieved with the tablet formulation relative to the soft gel capsule. Patients should also be aware that these adverse events (gastrointestinal or paresthesias) may diminish as therapy is continued.

Dose Modification for NORVIR
Dose reduction of NORVIR is necessary when used with other protease inhibitors: atazanavir, darunavir, fosamprenavir, saquinavir, and tipranavir.

Prescribers should consult the full prescribing information and clinical study information of these protease inhibitors if they are co-administered with a reduced dose of ritonavir.

Adult Patients
Recommended Dosage for Treatment of HIV-1:

The recommended dosage of ritonavir is 600 mg twice daily by mouth to be taken with meals. Use of a dose titration schedule may help to reduce treatment-emergent adverse events while maintaining appropriate ritonavir plasma levels. Ritonavir should be started at no less than 300 mg twice daily and increased at 2 to 3 day intervals by 100 mg twice daily. The maximum dose of 600 mg twice daily should not be exceeded upon completion of the titration.

See package insert for pediatric dosing.
