Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on Aug 26, 2019.

Generic name: DELAVIRDINE MESYLATE 100mg
Dosage form: tablet

The recommended dosage for RESCRIPTOR tablets is 400 mg (two 200-mg tablets) 3 times daily. RESCRIPTOR should be used in combination with other antiretroviral therapy. The complete prescribing information for other antiretroviral agents should be consulted for information on dosage and administration.

RESCRIPTOR tablets should be taken as intact tablets and may be administered with or without food (see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY: Pharmacokinetics: Absorption and Bioavailability). Patients with achlorhydria should take RESCRIPTOR with an acidic beverage (e.g., orange or cranberry juice). However, the effect of an acidic beverage on the absorption of delavirdine in patients with achlorhydria has not been investigated.

Patients taking both RESCRIPTOR and antacids should be advised to take them at least 1 hour apart.
