Response from Dr. Pierone
There is an interaction between Lipitor and protease inhibitors like Lexiva in which the blood levels of Lipitor tend to be higher. This is especially the case where Norvir is used as part of an antiretroviral regimen. Yet we still use Lipitor in conjunction with protease inhibitors, but start with a lower dose and slowly increase the dosage if necessary.
