Etravirine - fluconazole and voriconazole: Co-administration of etravirine and fluconazole or voriconazole significantly increased etravirine exposures. The amount of safety data at these increased etravirine exposures is limited; therefore, etravirine and fluconazole or voriconazole should be co-adminstered with caution. No dose adjustments of Intelence, fluconazole or voriconazole is needed.

Etravirine - lopinavir/ritonavir tablets: Intelence and Kaletra (lopinavir/ritonavir) tablets can be coadministered without dose adjustment

Etravirine - clopidogrel: Activation of clopidogrel to its active metabolite may be decreased when clopidogrel is co-administered with Intelence. Alternative to clopidogrel should be considered.

Etravirine is a Nonnucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitor (NNRTI) made by Tibotec Therapeutics.
