Answer

Answer

Lovastatin, simvastatin: May use pravastatin or fluvastatin, which have the least potential for drug-drug interactions (except for pravastatin with DRV/RTV); may use atorvastatin and rosuvastatin with caution (start with the lowest possible dose and titrate based on tolerance and lipid-lowering efficacy).

Rifampin: May use rifabutin with dosage adjustments.

Midazolam, triazolam: May use temazepam, lorazepam, or oxazepam. [1, 13]
