Claritin interaction

Feb 8, 2004

I am currently taking Sustiva, Epivir and Viread. I occassionally take an over the counter Claritin-D for fairly long standing sinus congestion. I am wondering in your experience is this disruptive to my Hiv meds in any way? Thanks in advance for your consideration

Response from Dr. Boyle

It should not be. It is one of the antihistamines that has the least drug interactions, which is one of the reasons it is so popular with clinicians.

Changing Regimens
should I change the regimen ?
