STD Home > Will My Medicines Interact With Didanosine?

Tenofovir (Viread) or Emtricitabine and Tenofovir (Truvada)
Products that contain tenofovir may increase the level of didanosine in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may recommend a lower didanosine dosage.
Tetracycline Antibiotics
Didanosine oral solution (but not didanosine capsules) can decrease the absorption of tetracycline antibiotics into your body, perhaps making them less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
Valganciclovir (Valcyte)
Combining valganciclovir with didanosine may increase the level of didanosine in your blood and may increase your risk of didanosine side effects, particularly the side effects that affect blood cells. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely.
