Food Restrictions

Mar 3, 2002

Hi! I am taking 4 agenerase plus 1 norvir (also DDI & abacavir). Can I take my angenerase & norvir together with a SlimFast shake? Do you have any suggestions on how to take this combo with the different food restrictions? I know you are supposed to take Norvir with food, & agenerase on an empty stomach or low fat meal.

Response from Dr. Young

I would think that the SlimFast would be fine. Usually, the addition of ritonavir offsets any dietary restrictions (at least this is the case for indinavir, which is supposed to be taken on an empty stomach; with ritonavir, can be taken with meals.) BY
