What should you do if you use too much ritonavir?


Call your doctor right away or seek immediate medical attention if your symptoms do not improve or they become worse after using ritonavir. You can also call 800-222-1222 to reach the American Association of Poison Control Centers or use its online resource if you think you’ve used too much ritonavir. But if you have severe symptoms, call 911 (or your local emergency number) immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.


If you think it is an emergency, call 999 or find your nearest A&E
If you need help now, but it’s not an emergency go to 111.nhs.uk or call 111. Alternatively you can speak to one of our pharmacists or use the Now Patient app to make an appointment with your GP.

What should I do if I miss my dose?

There are occasions when people forget to take their medication at correct prescribed times. This may not only have an effect on potentially making the medication less effective but it may also inadvertently lead to taking doses too close together, thereby increasing the risks of side effects.

Active ingredient of ritonavir and mechanism of action

Ritonavir is a HIV protease inhibitor. It works by inhibiting the protease enzyme (cytochrome P450), which is essential for the replication of the HIV virus. By blocking this enzyme, ritonavir helps to reduce the viral load and slow down the progression of HIV infection. It is not often used on its own for antiviral activity but as a booster with other protease inhibitors.

Uses of ritonavir

Ritonavir is primarily used as part of combination therapy for the treatment of HIV infection in adults and pediatric patients. It is used in combination with other antiretroviral therapy to suppress the replication of the HIV virus and improve immune function.

Forms of ritonavir

Ritonavir is available in capsule and oral solution formulations.

Dosage of ritonavir

The dosage of ritonavir will vary depending on factors such as the individual’s weight, the specific antiretroviral regimen, and their previous treatment history. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by your healthcare provider.

Precautions and warnings for ritonavir

  • Ritonavir may cause liver problems, including hepatitis and liver failure. Regular monitoring of liver function is recommended during treatment
  • Ritonavir may interact with certain foods and herbal supplements. Discuss with your healthcare provider about any dietary restrictions or potential interactions
  • Ritonavir should not be used during pregnancy unless the potential benefits outweigh the risks. It is not recommended for use while breastfeeding
  • Tell your doctor if you have hepatitis B or hepatitis C virus, heart problems, diabetes or high blood sugar, or hemophilia

Side effects of ritonavir

In clinical trials common side effects of ritonavir may include nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, headache, and fatigue. Other possible side effects include changes in body fat distribution, liver toxicity, pancreatitis, and increased cholesterol levels. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects, contact your healthcare provider. Get medical help right away if you have a life-threatening allergic reaction. Symptoms include hives, trouble breathing, shortness of breath, chest pain, swelling of the face, tongue or throat (angioedema), skin rash, and severe skin reactions. Promptly report any adverse effects to a healthcare professional for medical advice.

Interactions with other drugs

Ritonavir can have drug-drug interactions with a wide range of medications due to its effect on liver enzymes. It can interact with other medications, including alfuzosin, cisapride, lovastatin, lurasidone, pimozide, sildenafil, simvastatin, St. John’s wort, voriconazole, ritonavir, warfarin, cholesterol-lowering medications such as atorvastatin, certain medications for hepatitis C virus, antiretroviral drugs such as atazanavir , darunavir, and saquinavir, ranolazine, drugs to treat erectile dysfunction-ED or pulmonary hypertension such as sildenafil, medications that suppress the immune system, ergot medications such as dihydroergotamine, ergotamine, and methylergonovine, amiodarone flecainide, propafenone, quinidine, midazolam and triazolam. It is important to inform your healthcare provider about all the prescription drugs, over the counter nonprescription medication, supplements, and vitamins you are taking to avoid potential drug interactions.
