Presentation synopsis:

Clinical case 1: Complex DDIs

Use of multiple drugs in addition to antiretroviral treatment (polypharmacy) is getting increasingly common in people living with HIV (PLWH). This is partly due to aging and co-morbidities, but also to the use of other substances such as alternative treatments, supplements, anabolic steroids, recreational drugs, etc. Consequently, PLWH may be at risk for drug-drug interactions (DDIs) that may compromise the efficacy of the treatment and/or the patient's safety. Management of DDIs may be complex in clinical practice, especially when multiple prescribers are involved in health care of PLWH. In addition to current electronic resources on DDIs, new tools including clinical information on the relevance of DDIs in real life would be useful for professionals involved in health care of PLWH
