Adverse Reactions
Summary of the safety profile: The most severe adverse reaction, seen in an individual patient, was a hypersensitivity reaction that included rash and severe liver effects (see Precautions). The most commonly seen treatment emergent adverse reactions were nausea, diarrhoea and headache.
Tabulated list of adverse reactions: The adverse reactions considered at least possibly related to dolutegravir are listed by body system, organ class and absolute frequency. Frequencies are defined as very common, common, uncommon, rare, very rare. (See Table 3.)

Description of selected adverse reactions: Changes in laboratory biochemistries: Increases in serum creatinine occurred within the first week of treatment with dolutegravir and remained stable through 48 weeks. A mean change from baseline of 9.96 μmol/L was observed after 48 weeks of treatment.
Creatinine increases were comparable by various background regimens. These changes are not considered to be clinically relevant since they do not reflect a change in glomerular filtration rate.
Co-infection with Hepatitis B or C: Overall, the safety profile in patients co-infected with hepatitis B and/or C was similar to that observed in patients without hepatitis B or C co-infection, although the rates of AST and ALT abnormalities were higher in the subgroup with hepatitis B and/or C co-infection for all treatment groups. Liver chemistry elevations consistent with immune reconstitution syndrome were observed in some patients with hepatitis B and/or C co-infection at the start of dolutegravir therapy, particularly in those whose anti-hepatitis B therapy was withdrawn (see Precautions).
Immune reactivation syndrome: In HIV-infected patients with severe immune deficiency at the time of initiation of combination antiretroviral therapy (CART), an inflammatory reaction to asymptomatic or residual opportunistic infections may arise. Autoimmune disorders (such as Graves' disease and autoimmune hepatitis) have also been reported; however, the reported time to onset is more variable and these events can occur many months after initiation of treatment (see Precautions).
Metabolic parameters: Weight and levels of blood lipids and glucose may increase during antiretroviral therapy (see Precautions).
Paediatric population: Based on available data, children and adolescents (aged 4 weeks and above, to less than 18 years, and weighing at least 3 kg) who received the recommended doses of film-coated tablets or dispersible tablets once daily, there were no additional types of adverse reactions beyond those observed in the adult population.
