Medically reviewed by Last updated on Aug 15, 2023.

Recommended Dosage

PREZCOBIX is a fixed-dose combination product containing 800 mg of darunavir and 150 mg of cobicistat. In treatment-naïve and treatment-experienced adults and pediatric patients weighing at least 40 kg with no darunavir resistance-associated substitutions, the recommended dosage of PREZCOBIX is one tablet taken once daily orally with food. Administer PREZCOBIX in conjunction with other antiretroviral agents.

Testing Prior to Initiation of PREZCOBIX

HIV Genotypic Testing

HIV genotypic testing is recommended for antiretroviral treatment-experienced patients. However, when HIV genotypic testing is not feasible, PREZCOBIX can be used in protease inhibitor-naïve patients, but is not recommended in protease inhibitor-experienced patients.

Creatinine Clearance

Prior to starting PREZCOBIX, assess estimated creatinine clearance because cobicistat decreases estimated creatinine clearance due to inhibition of tubular secretion of creatinine without affecting actual renal glomerular function [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)] . When co-administering PREZCOBIX with tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (tenofovir DF) assess estimated creatinine clearance, urine glucose, and urine protein at baseline [see Warnings and Precautions (5.4)] .

Not Recommended in Severe Renal Impairment

PREZCOBIX co-administered with tenofovir DF is not recommended in patients who have an estimated creatinine clearance below 70 mL per minute [see Warnings and Precautions (5.4)and Adverse Reactions (6.1)] .

Not Recommended in Severe Hepatic Impairment

PREZCOBIX is not recommended for use in patients with severe hepatic impairment [see Use in Specific Populations (8.6)and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)] .

Not Recommended During Pregnancy

PREZCOBIX is not recommended during pregnancy because of substantially lower exposures of darunavir and cobicistat during the second and third trimesters [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)] .

PREZCOBIX should not be initiated in pregnant individuals. An alternative regimen is recommended for those who become pregnant during therapy with PREZCOBIX.
