What is VIDEX?
VIDEX is a brand name for didanosine, a synthetic purine nucleoside analogue active against HIV-1.
Didanosine is available as VIDEX, a Pediatric Powder for Oral Solution  and as VIDEX EC Delayed-Release Capsules, containing enteric-coated beadlets [consult prescribing information for VIDEX EC (didanosine)].
The chemical name for didanosine is 2′,3′-dideoxyinosine. The structural formula is:
Didanosine is a white crystalline powder with the molecular formula CHNO and a molecular weight of 236.2. The aqueous solubility of didanosine at 25° C and pH of approximately 6 is 27.3 mg per mL. Didanosine is unstable in acidic solutions. For example, at pH less than 3 and 37° C, 10% of didanosine decomposes to hypoxanthine in less than 2 minutes.

What might happen if I take too much VIDEX?
There is no known antidote for VIDEX (didanosine) overdosage. In phase 1 studies, in which VIDEX was initially administered at doses ten times the currently recommended dose, toxicities included: pancreatitis, peripheral neuropathy, diarrhea, hyperuricemia, and hepatic dysfunction. Didanosine is not dialyzable by peritoneal dialysis, although there is some clearance by hemodialysis .
How should I store and handle VIDEX?
Store olanzapine tablets at 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F); excursions permitted from 15°C to 30°C (59°F to 86°F) [see USP Controlled Room Temperature].Protect olanzapine tablets from light and moisture.

Non-Clinical ToxicologyVidex is contraindicated when coadministered with the following medications: Coadministration of didanosine and stavudine is contraindicated because of the potential for serious and/or life-threatening events notably pancreatitis, lactic acidosis, hepatotoxicity, and peripheral neuropathy [ Warnings and Precautions (, , , )].
Ranitidine has been reported to affect the bioavailability of other drugs through several different mechanisms such as competition for renal tubular secretion, alteration of gastric pH, and inhibition of cytochrome P450 enzymes.
Fatal and nonfatal pancreatitis has occurred during therapy with VIDEX used alone or in combination regimens in both treatment-naive and treatment-experienced patients, regardless of degree of immunosuppression. VIDEX should be suspended in patients with signs or symptoms of pancreatitis and discontinued in patients with confirmed pancreatitis. Coadministration of VIDEX with stavudine is contraindicated [ ].
When treatment with life-sustaining drugs known to cause pancreatic toxicity is required, suspension of VIDEX (didanosine) therapy is recommended. In patients with risk factors for pancreatitis, VIDEX should be used with extreme caution and only if clearly indicated. Patients with advanced HIV-1 infection, especially the elderly, are at increased risk of pancreatitis and should be followed closely. Patients with renal impairment may be at greater risk for pancreatitis if treated without dose adjustment. The frequency of pancreatitis is dose related. .
