  • HMG Co-A reductase inhibitors, or statins, interact with both PIs and NNRTIs (Table 4)
    • PIs generally inhibit CYP 3A4 and P-gp, resulting in increased statin exposure during coadministration[Holtzman 2006]
    • NNRTIs generally decrease statin concentrations, necessitating higher statin doses for efficacy
