Labeling update for Isentress (raltegravir)

On April 8, 2014 FDA approved updates to the Isentress (raltegravir) label to include information regarding co-adminsitration of raltegravir with boceprevir or telaprevir.

In drug interaction studies, raltegravir did not have a clinically meaningful effect on the pharmacokinetics of telaprevir or boceprevir. No dose adjustment is required for Isentress or boceprevir or telaprevir.

The complete revised label can be viewed at Drugs@FDA

Isentress is an HIV integrase strand transfer inhibitor, manufactured by Merck & Co., Inc.
