re: lasting effects
Sep 29, 2011

it sounds as though you are saying that the immense weight gain (140 to 180 in 6 weeks) I relate to Kaletra (PEP) will probably diminish over time? Do you suppose the hypoglycemia will return as well? I'm not liking my new paunch, but I am liking my post pep energy levels...

Response from Dr. Young

Hi again,

I'd be shocked if 4 weeks of PEP (even if it included appropriately, Kaletra) would result in forty pounds of weight gain.


Should I stop or continue the treatment?
