Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) (PVJ3258963)

Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets)

The main active ingredient is Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets), Non-nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors, used actively against HIV or AIDS virus. This medicine is quite effective to reduce the discomfort and severity of AIDS and it is a very popular part of antiretroviral therapy.

 

Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) used for?

Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) (also known as Sustiva) are used with other HIV medications as part of combination therapy for the treatment of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection in adults and children three years of age or older.  Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) must not be used alone as the virus can develop resistance if used as monotherapy and Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) is, therefore, combined with two other drugs that have a different mechanism of action.  This treatment regime is known as highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) and is designed to minimise the ability of the virus to multiply and help prevent development of viral resistance to treatment.  HIV impairs the immune system by attacking specific immune cells called CD4+ cells that are involved in fighting infection and this can lead to opportunistic life-threatening infection (infections that would not normally be harmful).  Also if too many CD4+ cells are destroyed this can result in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).  Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) slows down the ability of HIV to replicate and spread, which keeps the amount virus down to a low level (reduces viral load) and this results in an increase in CD4+ cell numbers, so that the immune system can recover, reducing the risk of disease progression. 

 

Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) work?

Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) (also known as Sustiva) contain efavirenz, a non-nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI), which is only effective against RNA viruses (retroviruses) like Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).  It works by inhibiting the action of the viral-specific enzyme reverse transcriptase (RT), which is needed for the virus to be able to replicate.  Retroviruses convert RNA to DNA, which is then integrated into the DNA of infected immune cells so that the virus can replicate.  Efavirenz in Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) acts by binding to a specific site on the RT enzyme and blocks its action in a manner that is noncompetitive with nucleosides (precursors to the building blocks of DNA and RNA), thereby preventing the conversion of viral RNA to DNA.  This action prevents the integration of virus into the DNA of the infected CD4+ immune cell, which inhibits the replication of HIV so that no more virus can be produced; and this reduces the viral load (amount of virus).  Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) slow down the replication of HIV within your body but does not kill the virus already incorporated in the CD4+ cells or prevent the spread of the infection to others.

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) (PVJ3021345)

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets)

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) is a combination of lamivudine and zidovudine, which belong to the nucleoside analog class of antiretroviral drugs. Each tablet of Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) contains half of the commonly prescribed daily doses of both lamivudine and zidovudine. With the availability of this combination tablet, patients may be better able to adhere to complex drug treatment regimens, thereby enhancing compliance.

 

What is Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) used for?

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) are prescribed to treat HIV infection in patients with or without acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV directly affects the immune system by impairing the specific immune cells (CD4) that counter infection, so the risk of life-threatening infection increases. Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) medicine can prevent or slow down the ability of HIV to replicate, lowering the capacity of the virus. This medication functions to increase the number of CD4 cells, providing good strength to the immune system and defying the risk of disease.

 

How does Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) work?

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) contain a combination of two antiretroviral drugs lamivudine and zidovudine, which both belong to class of drugs known as nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI) that are only effective against retroviruses (RNA virus) like HIV. A nucleoside is a building block of DNA that is needed by the virus to replicate, and nucleoside analogues, like lamivudine and zidovudine in Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets), become incorporated into the DNA that is copied from the virus RNA by an enzyme called reverse transcriptase. This blocks the action of reverse transcriptase and terminates the viral DNA chain so that it cannot become integrated into the DNA of the infected immune cell, which means that no more HIV can be produced. Lamivudine is highly synergistic with zidovudine, which means that it increases the effectiveness of zidovudine so that the combination of these two antiretroviral drugs in Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) slow down the replication of HIV within your body but cannot prevent the spread of the infection to others.

 

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) Dosage and Administration

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) contain 150mg of lamivudine and 300mg of zidovudine.

Valacyclovir in Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) then works in the same way as acyclovir, as an antiviral agent that is highly active against both types of herpes simplex virus, HSV-I, that causes cold sores and HSV-II that causes genital herpes; and also against the closely related varicella zoster herpes virus that causes chicken pox and shingles. Acyclovir inhibits the action of a viral enzyme (DNA polymerase), blocking viral DNA synthesis without affecting normal cellular processes. This prevents the virus replicating and therefore stops the growth and spread of the virus, relieving symptoms of the infection and helping the body to fight off the infection. Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) will not cure a herpes infection, as the virus can lie dormant in infected cells until reactivated when immunity is low by stress, other illness or even exposure to sunlight, causing new infections like cold sores and shingles; but it does reduce pain and help the sores caused by the infection to heal faster.

Tenvir-EM(Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate300/Emtricitabine200) (PVJ96655)

What is Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets)?

Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) containing the 2 active ingredients tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and emtricitabine is considered a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) type of medication. The medication works by controlling and preventing the HIV cells from multiplying in the body to help the immune system work better. It should be used in combination with other medications to lower the chance of suffering from HIV complications and slowing the progression of the disease from HIV to AIDS. Using more than 1 type of medication can prevent the body from becoming immune to the treatment.

 

What is Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) used for?

Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) are a fixed dose combination treatment for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection in adults over age 18. Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) are used combination with other medications that have a different mechanism of action to the components in Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets), and are used to treat patients with HIV infection who have either already received treatment with other medications for HIV or as first line therapy for treatment-inexperienced patients. HIV impairs the immune system by attacking specific immune cells called CD4+ cells that are involved in fighting infection and this can lead to opportunistic life-threatening infection (infections that would not normally be harmful); also if too many CD4+ cells are destroyed this can result in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) prevent or slow down the ability of HIV to replicate and spread, which keeps the amount virus down to a low level and this results in an increase in CD4 cell numbers, so that the immune system can recover, reducing the risk of disease progression.

 How does Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) work?

Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) contain a combination of two antiretroviral drugs, emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, which are only effective against RNA viruses (retroviruses) like Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). These drugs each work by inhibiting the action of the viral-specific enzyme reverse transcriptase (RT), which is needed for the virus to be able to replicate. Retroviruses convert RNA to DNA, which is then integrated into the DNA of infected immune cells so that the virus can replicate. Emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate are both nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI), which means that they block the action of RT by competing with one of the nucleosides needed to transcribe the viral RNA into DNA, becoming incorporated into the chain of newly synthesized viral DNA and preventing it from growing (chain termination). Emtricitabine is an analogue of cytidine and tenofovir is an analogue of adenosine. The combined action of these two antiiretroviral drugs in Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) prevents the integration of the virus into the DNA of the infected CD4+ immune cell, which inhibits the replication of HIV so that no more virus can be produced and this reduces the viral load (amount of virus). Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) slow down the replication of HIV within your body but does not kill the virus already incorporated in the CD4+ cells or prevent the spread of the infection to others.

Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) (PVJ36522)

Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets)

Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) contains three drugs: Lamivudine, Nevirapine and Zidovudine. It is the medicine that is used with other HIV drugs for the control of HIV infections. This drug is very effective in decreasing the chances of a person getting infected with this virus. It improves the condition of the patient.

Lamivudine and Zidovudine are both NRTIs i.e. Nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors while Nevirapine is a non-NTRIs(NNTRIs).

Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) is a combination of three drugs commonly used in the management of the human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) infection. Both zidovudine and lamivudine belong to the nucleoside analogue class of antiretroviral drugs. Both drugs act by terminating the growth of the dna chain and inhibiting the reverse transcriptase (rt) of hiv. Nevirapine is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (nnrti). It acts by directly inhibiting rt. Each tablet of Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) contains half of the commonly prescribed daily doses of zidovudine, lamivudine and nevirapine. Usually, all three drugs are to be administered twice daily, permitting a fixed-dose combination to be formulated. With the availability of this combination formulation, patients may be better able to adhere to triple drug regimens, thereby enhancing compliance.

 

Uses of the drug:

This medicine is used for HIV infections. HIV is Human Immunodeficiency Virus; this virus is responsible for spreading AIDS disease. HIV can be transmitted through blood transfusion, mother to child during pregnancy and through sexual contact with infected persons etc.

 

How does Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) work?

Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) contain a combination of three antiretroviral drugs; nevirapine, zidovudine and lamivudine, which are effective only against RNA viruses (retroviruses) like Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). These three drugs each work by inhibiting the action of the viral-specific enzyme reverse transcriptase (RT) which is needed for the virus to be able to replicate. Retroviruses convert RNA to DNA, which is then integrated into the DNA of infected immune cells so that the virus can replicate. Nevirapine in Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI); nucleosides are the precursors to the building blocks of DNA and RNA. Nevirapine in Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) acts by binding to a specific site on the RT enzyme, the enzyme's active site known as the NNRTI pocket, disrupting the catalytic site of the enzyme, and blocking its action in a manner that is noncompetitive with nucleosides. Zidovudine and lamivudine are both nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI), which means that they block the action of RT by competing with one of the nucleosides needed to transcribe the viral RNA into DNA, becoming incorporated into the chain of newly synthesized viral DNA and preventing it from growing (chain termination). Zidovudine is an analogue of thymidine and lamivudine is an analogue of cytidine. The combined action of the three antiiretroviral drugs in Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) prevents the integration of the virus into the DNA of the infected CD4+ immune cell by 2 different mechanisms, which inhibits the replication of HIV so that no more virus can be produced, and this reduces the viral load (amount of virus). Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) slows down the replication of HIV within your body but does not kill the virus already incorporated in the CD4+ cells or prevent the spread of the infection to others.

 

Dosage Adjustment

Because Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) is a fixed-dose combination, they should not be prescribed for patients requiring dosage adjustment such as those with reduced renal function (creatinine clearance <50 ml/min), or hepatic impairment, or those experiencing dose-limiting adverse events.

Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) should be discontinued if patients experience severe rash or a rash accompanied by constitutional findings (see warnings and precautions). Patients experiencing mild to moderate rash during the 14-day lead-in period of 200 mg/day should not have their nevirapine dose increased or start therapy with Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) tuntil the rash has resolved (see warnings and precautions). If rash persists beyond the 14-day lead-in period, do not dose escalate to Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) twice daily. The Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) once-daily dosing regimen should not be continued beyond 28 days, after which an alternative regimen should be sought.

If a clinical (symptomatic) hepatic event occurs, nevirapine should be permanently discontinued and not be restarted after recovery .

Patients who interrupt nevirapine dosing for more than 7 days should restart the recommended dosing, using one 200 mg nevirapine tablet daily for the first 14 days (lead-in) in combination with the lamivudine + zidovudine, followed by Duovir-N (Lamivudine 150mg, Zidovudine 300 mg and Nevirapine 200mg Tablets) twice daily in the absence of any signs of hypersensitivity.

Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) (PVJ3987456)

What is Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets)?

Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) containing the active ingredient efavirenz belongs to a class of medications called non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs). The medication works by decreasing the amount of HIV in the body and preventing the cells from multiplying to allow the immune system to work better. It must be used along with other medications to decrease the chance of developing acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and HIV related illnesses such as serious infections or cancer.

How does Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) work?

Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) (also known as Sustiva) contain efavirenz, a non-nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI), which is only effective against RNA viruses (retroviruses) like Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). It works by inhibiting the action of the viral-specific enzyme reverse transcriptase (RT), which is needed for the virus to be able to replicate. Retroviruses convert RNA to DNA, which is then integrated into the DNA of infected immune cells so that the virus can replicate. Efavirenz in Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) acts by binding to a specific site on the RT enzyme and blocks its action in a manner that is noncompetitive with nucleosides (precursors to the building blocks of DNA and RNA), thereby preventing the conversion of viral RNA to DNA. This action prevents the integration of virus into the DNA of the infected CD4+ immune cell, which inhibits the replication of HIV so that no more virus can be produced; and this reduces the viral load (amount of virus). Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) slow down the replication of HIV within your body but does not kill the virus already incorporated in the CD4+ cells or prevent the spread of the infection to others.

 

When should Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) not be used?

You should not use Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) if you:

  • are allergic to efavirenz or any ingredients in Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets)

Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) (PVJ990012)

What is Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules)?

Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) is an antiviral medication that prevents human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) cells from multiplying in your body. Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) is used to treat HIV, which causes the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) is not a cure for HIV or AIDS. Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) may also be used for purposes not listed in Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) guide. Overdose symptoms may include some of the serious side effects listed in Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) guide.

 

Pancreatitis

Fatal and non-fatal pancreatitis has occurred during therapy with did anosine used alone or in combination regimens in both treatment-naïve and treatment-experienced patients, regardless of degree of immunosuppression.  Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules)should be suspended in patients with signs or symptoms of pancreatitis. Patients treated with Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) in combination with stavudine, with or without hydroxyurea, may be at increased risk for pancreatitits.

When treatment with life-sustaining drugs known to cause pancreatic toxicity is required, suspension of didanosine therapy is recommended. In patients with risk factors for pancreatitis, Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) should be used with extreme caution and only if clearly indicated.  Patients with advanced hiv-1 infection, especially the elderly, are at increased risk of pancreatitis and should be followed closely. Patients with renal impairment may be at greater risk for pancreatitis if treated without dose adjustment.the frequency of pancreatitis is dose-related.

 

Lactic acidosis/Severe Hepatomegaly with Steatosis

Lactic acidosis and severe hepatomegaly with steatosis, including fatal cases, have been reported with the use of nucleoside analogues alone or in combination, including didanosine and other antiretrovirals. A majority of these have been in women. Obesity and prolonged nucleoside exposure may be risk factors. Fatal lactic acidosis has been reported in pregnant women who received the combination of didanosine and stavudine with other antiretroviral agents. The combination of didanosine and stavudine should be used with caution during pregnancy and is recommended only if the potential benefit clearly outweighs the potential risk (see warnings and precautions, pregnancy).particular caution should be exercised when administering didanosine to any patient with known risk factors for liver disease; however, cases have also been reported in patients with no known risk factors. Treatment with Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) should be suspended in any patient who develops clinical signs or symptoms with or without laboratory findings consistent with symptomatic hyperlactatemia, lactic acidosis, or pronounced hepatoxicity (which may include hepatomegaly and steatosis even in the absence of marked transaminase elevations).

 

Hepatic Toxicity

The safety and efficacy of Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) have not been established in hiv-infected patients with significant underlying liver disease. During combination antiretroviral therapy, patients with pre-existing liver dysfunction, including chronic active hepatitis, have an increased frequency of liver function abnormalities, including severe and potentially fatal hepatic adverse events, and should be monitored according to standard practice. If there is evidence of worsening liver disease in such patients, interruption or discontinuation of treatment must be considered.

Hepatotoxicity and hepatic failure resulting in death were reported during postmarketing surveillance in hiv-infected patients treated with hydroxyurea and other antiretroviral agents.  Fatal hepatic events were reported most often in patients treated with the combination of hydroxyurea, didanosine and stavudine. This combination should be avoided.

 

Non-cirrhotic Portal Hypertension

Postmarketing cases of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension have been reported, including cases leading to liver transplantation or death. Cases of didanosine-associated non-cirrhotic portal hypertension were confirmed by liver biopsy in patients with no evidence of viral hepatitis.  Onset of signs and symptoms ranged from months to years after start of didanosine therapy. Common presenting features included elevated liver enzymes, esophageal varices, hematemesis, ascites, and splenomegaly.

Patients receiving Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules) should be monitored for early signs of portal hypertension (eg, thrombocytopenia and splenomegaly) during routine medical visits. Appropriate laboratory testing including liver enzymes, serum bilirubin, albumin, complete blood count, and international normalized ratio (inr) and ultrasonography should be considered. Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules)(Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules)should be discontinued in patients with evidence of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension.

 

Immune Reconstitution Syndrome

Immune reconstitution syndrome has been reported in patients treated with combination antiretroviral therapy, including Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules). During the initial phase of combination antiretroviral treatment, patients whose immune system responds may develop an inflammatory response to indolent or residual opportunistic infections (such as mycobacterium avium infection, cytomegalovirus, pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia , or tuberculosis), which may necessitate further evaluation and treatment.

Autoimmune disorders (such as graves’ disease, polymyositis, and guillain-barré syndrome) have also been reported to occur in the setting of immune reconstitution; however, the time to onset is more variable, and can occur many months after initiation of treatment.

 

Pregnancy

Pregnancy Category B:

Reproduction studies have been performed in rats and rabbits at doses up to 12 and 14.2 times the estimated human exposure (based upon plasma levels), respectively, and have revealed no evidence of impaired fertility or harm to the fetus due to didanosine. At approximately 12 times the estimated human exposure, didanosine was slightly toxic to female rats and their pups during mid- and late-lactation. These rats showed reduced food intake and body weight gains but the physical and functional development of the offspring was not impaired and there were no major changes in the f2 generation. A study in rats showed that didanosine and/or its metabolites are transferred to the fetus through the placenta. Animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response.

There are no adequate and well-controlled studies of didanosine in pregnant women. Didanosine should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk.

Fatal lactic acidosis has been reported in pregnant women who received the combination of didanosine and stavudine with other antiretroviral agents. It is unclear if pregnancy augments the risk of lactic acidosis/hepatic steatosis syndrome reported in non-pregnant individuals receiving nucleoside analogs (see warnings and precautions). The combination of didanosine and stavudine should be used with caution during pregnancy and is recommended only if the potential benefit clearly outweighs the potential risk. Healthcare providers caring for hiv-infected pregnant women receiving didanosine should be alert for an early diagnosis of lactic acidosis/hepatic steatosis syndrome.

 

Pediatric Use

Use of didanosine in pediatric patients from 2 weeks of age through adolescence is supported by evidence from adequate and well-controlled studies of didanosine in adult and pediatric patients (seedosage and administration; undesirable effects; pharmacology). Additional pharmacokinetic studies in pediatric patients support the use of didanosinein pediatric patients who weigh at least 20 kg.

 

Geriatric Use

In an expanded access program using a buffered formulation of didanosine for the treatment of advanced hiv infection, patients aged 65 years and older had a higher frequency of pancreatitis (10%) than younger patients (5%) (see warnings and precautions). Clinical studies of didanosine, including those for Dinex EC (Didanosine Delayed - Release 250mg Capsules), did not include sufficient numbers of subjects aged 65 years and over to determine whether they respond differently than younger subjects. Didanosine is known to be substantially excreted by the kidney, and the risk of toxic reactions to this drug may be greater in patients with impaired renal function. Because elderly patients are more likely to have decreased renal function, care should be taken in dose selection. In addition, renal function should be monitored and dosage adjustments should be made accordingly (see dosage and administration).

 

Overdosage

There is no known antidote for didanosine overdosage.  In phase 1 studies, in which buffered formulations of didanosine were initially administered at doses ten times the currently recommended dose, toxicities included:pancreatitis, peripheral neuropathy, diarrhea, hyperuricemia, and hepatic dysfunction. Didanosine is not dialyzable by peritoneal dialysis, although there is some clearance by hemodialysis
