Response from Dr. Young
Spanish- Thanks for your post, comments and question.
The proton pump inhibitor (or antacid), Prevacid, has limited drug interactions with HIV medications. Like other PPIs, they shouldn't be taken with atazanavir (Reyataz). Otherwise, it shouldn't be a problem.
Hope this helps, BY
