Why this application may be useful:
In HIV therapy, patients take more than one anti-HIV medication at a time and possibly other drugs to treat co-existing conditions. Many of the drug combinations have the potential to interact and this can affect either the patient's safety or the effectiveness of treatment. For this reason some drug combinations should not be given at all, while other drugs may be used together with caution, possibly requiring adjustments to dosage or time of administration. This application is a guide to interactions that may occur between different anti-HIV drugs and other medications that the HIV-infected patient may be prescribed. The application is regularly updated as new data emerge. Full details about the interactions can be found at www.hiv-druginteractions.org.

- Now able to search for drug names as well as scrolling through an A-Z list.
