Drug Interactions - HIV medicines, part 6
This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about drug interactions when taking antiretroviral therapy (ART), a combination of HIV medicines used to treat HIV infection. It explains that drug interactions can decrease or increase the action of a medicine, and can cause side effects. It defines drug-drug interaction, drug-food interaction, and a reaction between a drug and a medical condition, known as drug-condition interaction. The document discusses the possibility of these interactions with HIV medicines, and recommends that people tell their health care provider about all medicines, vitamins, supplements, and other products they take.
