On September 30, 2008, FDA approved an alternative dosing regimen for Reyataz (atazanavir) for HIV-1 infected treatment-naïve patients who can take ritonavir. The recommended dosage is Reyataz 300 mg with ritonavir 100 mg once daily for treatment-naïve patients. Revisions with respect to the new dosing regimen in treatment-naïve patients were added to the package insert. Other minor revisions were made throughout the label.
