can ddi, abc and aluvia taken together
Sep 12, 2010

when we had kaletra we recommended DDI early morning on empty stomach and one hour later ABC and kaletra. Now we have aluvia which can be taken without regard to food. Can all be taken as one dose on empty stomach?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Aluvia (also known as Kaletra,lopinavir/ritonavir, tablet formulation) and abacavir (Ziagen, ABC) can indeed be taken without regard to food- so a regimen of Aluvia, ddI and abacavir can all be taken together as a once-daily regimen.
