A new feature has been added to the website interaction checker to make it easier to find possible alternatives when an interaction is amber or red. For these interactions, you now have the option to click on “look for alternatives”. This will take you to a new page showing interactions for the antiretroviral with other comedications in the same class.
The look for alternatives option is not available if a comedication belongs to the “herbals/supplements/vitamins”, “illicit/recreational” or “others” classes, nor is it available for any yellow or green interactions.
Please note, the clinical suitability of a drug as an alternative may depend not only on its interaction profile, but also on patient specific information.
