Dovato (dolutegravir / lamivudine) and Alcohol/Food Interactions
There are 3 alcohol/food/lifestyle interactions with Dovato (dolutegravir / lamivudine) which include:
multivitamins with minerals dolutegravir
Major Drug Interaction
Dolutegravir and multivitamin with minerals should not be taken orally at the same time. Products that contain aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium and/or other minerals may interfere with the absorption of dolutegravir and reduce its effectiveness in treating HIV infection. You should take dolutegravir at least two hours before or six hours after the multivitamin with minerals dose. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns, or if you have trouble separating the dosing times. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
Minor Food Interaction
Information for this minor interaction is available on the professional version.
High Cholesterol (Hyperlipoproteinemia, Hypertriglyceridemia, Sitosterolemia)
Major Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility
NRTIs - pancreatitis
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.
