Dutrebis (lamivudine / raltegravir) Disease Interactions

There are 6 disease interactions with Dutrebis (lamivudine / raltegravir):


Nrtis (Includes Dutrebis) ↔ Pancreatitis

Severe Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Hyperlipidemia, Pancreatitis, Alcoholism

The reverse transcriptase inhibitors, didanosine (ddI), zalcitabine (ddC), stavudine (d4T) and lamivudine (3TC), may cause pancreatitis. The incidence is generally low but is approximately 7% with ddI, and up to 15% in pediatric patients given 3TC. Patients with a history of or known risk factors for pancreatitis, such as alcohol abuse or hypertriglyceridemia, should be monitored closely during therapy with these agents. Therapy should be discontinued at the first signs or symptoms suggestive of pancreatitis (e.g., nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, hyperamylasemia with dysglycemia, rising triglycerides, decreasing serum calcium), and preferably permanently discontinued if clinical pancreatitis develops.

Nrtis (Includes Dutrebis) ↔ Renal Dysfunction

Severe Potential Hazard, High plausibility

Applies to: Renal Dysfunction

Patients with clinically significant renal impairment may be at greater risk for toxicities and adverse effects from nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) due to decreased drug clearance. Dosage adjustments are recommended. In addition, these patients should be monitored closely during NRTI therapy, and dosages adjusted further if necessary.

Raltegravir (Includes Dutrebis) ↔ Hemodialysis

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: hemodialysis

There were no clinically important pharmacokinetic differences between subjects with severe renal impairment and healthy subjects. No dosage adjustment is necessary for these patients. Because the extent to which raltegravir may be dialyzable is unknown, dosing before a dialysis session should be avoided.


Raltegravir (Includes Dutrebis) ↔ Hepatis B Or C Co-Infection

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Liver Disease, Infectious Hepatitis

The safety profile of raltegravir in subjects with hepatitis B and/or hepatitis C virus co-infection was similar to that in subjects without these conditions, although the rates of AST and ALT abnormalities were higher in the subgroup with hepatitis B and/or hepatitis C virus co-infection for all treatment groups. Raltegravir is eliminated primarily by glucuronidation in the liver. There were no clinically important pharmacokinetic differences between subjects with moderate hepatic impairment and healthy subjects. No dosage adjustment is necessary for patients with mild to moderate hepatic impairment. Therapy with raltegravir should be administered with caution in patients with severe hepatic impairment, as the pharmacokinetics of raltegravir have not been studied in this population. Liver transaminases and bilirubin should regularly be monitored during therapy.


Raltegravir (Includes Dutrebis) ↔ Myopathy/Rhabdomyolysis

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Myopathy

The use of raltegravir has been associated with creatine kinase elevations. There have been reports of myopathy and rhabdomyolysis in patients taking raltegravir. Therapy with raltegravir should be used with caution in patients at increased risk of myopathy or rhabdomyolysis, such as patients receiving concomitant medications known to cause these conditions or patients with a history of rhabdomyolysis, myopathy or increased serum creatine kinase levels.


Raltegravir (Includes Dutrebis) ↔ Pku

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Phenylketonuria

Isentress (brand of raltegravir) chewable tablets contain phenylalanine. The 25 mg chewable tablet contains approximately 0.05 mg phenylalanine and the 100 mg contains approximately 0.10 mg phenylalanine. The phenylalanine content should be considered when this product is used in patients who must restrict their intake of phenylalanine (i.e. phenylketonuria).

There are 141 drug interactions with Dutrebis (lamivudine / raltegravir)

Dutrebis (lamivudine / raltegravir) alcohol/food Interactions

There is 1 alcohol/food interaction with Dutrebis (lamivudine / raltegravir)

Drug Interaction Classification

The classifications below are a general guideline only. It is difficult to determine the relevance of a particular drug interaction to any individual given the large number of variables.

Major Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.
Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.
