"Use this application to search for potential drug-drug interactions between anti-HIV drugs and other medications an HIV+ patient may be taking. Results are presented as a “Traffic Light” system (red, amber, green) to indicate the recommendation. A brief summary of the interaction is given, along with a grading of the quality of evidence (very low, low, moderate, high). The application is available free of charge and has been developed by the HIV Pharmacology Group at the University of Liverpool through support from MSD, the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Janssen"<

Requirements:
This is an “offline” application that is downloaded to your device (~1.5 MB). An internet connection is not required to use the application, but is needed for downloading updates.

Why this application may be useful:
In HIV therapy, patients take more than one anti-HIV medication at a time and possibly other drugs to treat co-existing conditions. Many of the drug combinations have the potential to interact and this can affect either the patient's safety or the effectiveness of treatment. For this reason some drug combinations should not be given at all, while other drugs may be used together with caution, possibly requiring adjustments to dosage or time of administration. This application is a guide to interactions that may occur between different anti-HIV drugs and other medications that the HIV+ patient may be prescribed. The application is regularly updated as new data emerge. Full details about the interactions can be found at www.hiv-druginteractions.org."<
