Jun 26, 2013
Dr. Young, Thank you for answering questions in such a kind manner for all of us desperate people who are searching for information. Could you please tell me which one of these integrase inhibitors would be LESS apt. to cause diarrhea. Thanks!
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
Neither raltegravir or the investigational (and likely soon to be FDA approved) drug dolutegravir are associated with significant rates or severity of diarrhea. In one clinical trial that compared these two drugs directly 11% of individuals on both medications reported every having diarrhea over the 48 week duration of the study.
I hope that's helpful, BY
