Risk of kidney disease with atazanavir-containing products Reactions 1664, p3 - 12 Aug 2017 Risk of kidney disease with atazanavir-containing products The risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is now included in the product information for two atazanavir- containing medicines in Canada. In the July issue of Health Product InfoWatch, it was reported that this risk had been included in the Canadian Product Monographs (CPMs) for atazanavir/cobicistat (Evotaz) and atazanavir alone (Reyataz). Specifically, the ’Warnings and Precautions’ and ’Adverse Reactions’ sections of the CPMs for these products will include the following key messages for healthcare professionals: CKD has been reported in patients treated with atazanavir (± ritonavir). Some cases resulted in fatal outcomes or requiring haemodialysis. Evotaz and Reyataz should be used with caution, especially in patients with other risk factors for CKD. Health Canada.
