Truvada, Reyataz & Norvir
Feb 13, 2009

Hi Dr. Ben,

Thanks for your great responses to the many, many questions that we have. Quick one on drug interactions. Is it safe to take acetaminophen (Tylenol) or Ibuprofen for common headaches, body aches, etc while on the Truvada, Reyataz, & Norvir combination therapy? Thanks for your time!

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post and comments.

A quick one indeed.

Both acetaminophen and ibuprofen are safe to take while on the HAART combination that you're on. Be sure to let your doctor know if the headaches or body aches don't resolve within a week or so.

Be well, BY
