Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

This is a topic of frequent confusion. Kaletra can be stored at room temperature for one month without any concern for degradation of the drug.

As for the skin symptoms, I don't think that they are related to the storage, but certainly worthy of discussion and/or evaluation by your doctor.

Good luck, BY
