When will ritonavir as a booster be made in a non refrigerated formula? I take alot of pills and would like to simplify my program.

Thanks for your post.
No immediate word about when the tablet formulation of ritonavir will be released-- it's been promised for years by Abbott Laboratories.
[Editor's note: In January 2009, a "heat-stable" tablet form of Norvir was submitted by Abbott for U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval. As of September 2009 that approval had not yet been granted.]
For now, know that you don't have to keep today's (or this month's) doses in the fridge- the capsule is stable at room temperature for at least 1 month.
Hope this helps, BY
