Hi, I'm currently on Kaletra and Truvada. I'm planning to take Ibuprofen for a few days due to tennis elbow pain. Will this affect my HIV meds? Thank you so much!

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Provided that you don't have any kidney problems, there shouldn't be any problem taking ibuprofen for a few days with your HIV medications. Make sure to let you doctor know about all the prescription and non-prescription medications that you're taking just to be safe.

Best of health, BY
