Ritonavir capsules vs. pills

Jun 7, 2012

I am on Truvada + Reyataz (atazanavir)+ one capsule of Ritonavir. My lab replace the refrigerated capsules of 100mg for pills of 100 mg. Should I expect side effects from this change or its the same as taking the capsule? Tks Mari

Response from Dr. Young

Hello Mari,

The tablet and capsule forms of ritonavir (Norvir) should be essentially the same, without any differences in side effects.

Hope that helps, but let us know how the change goes for you. BY
