Rydapt Interactions


Concomitant drugs that prolong QT interval; monitor EKG periodically. Potentiated by strong CYP3A inhibitors (eg, boceprevir, clarithromycin, cobicistat, conivaptan, danoprevir/ritonavir, diltiazem, elvitegravir/ritonavir, grapefruit juice, idelalisib, indinavir/ritonavir, itraconazole, ketoconazole, lopinavir/ritonavir, nefazodone, nelfinavir, paritaprevir/ritonavir and [ombitasvir and/or dasabuvir], posaconazole, ritonavir, saquinavir/ritonavir, tipranavir/ritonavir, troleandomycin, voriconazole); consider alternatives; if co-administration needed, monitor for increased adverse reactions. Avoid concomitant strong CYP3A inducers (eg, carbamazepine, enzalutamide, mitotane, phenytoin, rifampin, St. John's wort). Concomitant sensitive CYP2B6, BCRP or OATP1B1 substrates may need dose adjustment of these substrates. Risk of prolonged Grade 4 neutropenia, thrombocytopenia in pediatrics treated with combination chemotherapy (including anthracyclines, fludarabine, cytarabine); see full labeling.
