Stomach Upset & ATRVs
May 15, 2013
good morning doc, 3 days ago I have been with stomach upset maybe because I ate a buffalo wins last saturday and a couple of beers, my gastroenterologist prescribe me 40mg Gletop 40mg(esomeprazole), leprit 25mg(Levosulpiride) and celectan 500 mg (nitazoxanide) the last one for three days. My gastroenterologist does not know about my HIV status, I've been with Truvada + Evavirenz for over a year with higher CD4 700 and viral load undetectable. My uestion is: It's okay to take these medications with my current regime. I'm worried about drug-drug intereaccion . thanks in advance for your answer.

Hi and thanks for posting.
First, there aren't any significant drug-drug interactions between your HIV medications and the other GI meds.
Second, I'd encourage you to inform your other care providers about your HIV status, particularly when you're having an evaluation for significant symptoms. Knowledge of your status can change the diagnostic or treatment approach- sometimes to more rapidly get you feeling better.
I hoep that helps. BY
