Taking this medication will not prevent you from passing HIV to other people. Avoid having unprotected sex or sharing razors or toothbrushes. Talk with your doctor about safe ways to prevent HIV transmission during sex. Sharing drug or medicine needles is never safe, even for a healthy person.

What other drugs will affect atazanavir (Reyataz)?

  • a blood thinner such as warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven);
  • heart rhythm or blood pressure medication such as amiodarone (Cordarone, Pacerone), diltiazem (Cartia, Cardizem), nifedipine (Nifedical, Procardia), quinidine (Quin-G), verapamil (Calan, Covera, Isoptin, Verelan), and others;
  • cholesterol-lowering medicine such as atorvastatin (Lipitor), rosuvastatin (Crestor), and others;
  • drugs that weaken the immune system, such as cyclosporine (Gengraf, Neoral, Sandimmune), sirolimus (Rapamune), or tacrolimus (Prograf);
  • insulin or oral diabetes medication;
  • medicines to treat erectile dysfunction, such as sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis, Adcirca), or vardenafil (Levitra);
  • other HIV/AIDS medicine such as efavirenz (Sustiva), saquinavir (Invirase), or tenofovir (Viread); or
