Risk of Harmful Drug Interactions Rises With Age in HIV+ US Group
Posted on: November 27 2013, 06:11 pm

Every 10 years of age independently raised chances that a person in a US HIV cohort would be prescribed an antiretroviral and a nonantiretroviral that should not be given together. One third of cohort members were prescribed medications with moderate or high evidence of a possible drug-drug interaction.

As people age, they typically take a growing number of medications to treat chronic conditions. The impact of polypharmacy is receiving increasing attention in HIV populations, who already usually take three or more antiretrovirals that may interact with each other and with nonantiretrovirals.
