Higher didanosine concentrations could potentiate didanosine-associated adverse reactions, including pancreatitis, and neuropathy. Suppression of CD4+ cell counts has been observed in patients receiving tenofovirdisoproxilfumarate with didanosine 400 mg daily.
- In patients weighing greater than 60 kg, the didanosine dose should be reduced to 250 mg when it is coadministered with tenofovirdisoproxilfumarate/emtricitabine.
