take clarinase while on PEP

May 9, 2014

Hi doctor, I am on the 23rd day of Isentress and Truvada (pep treatment). These 2 days, I have been having itchy nose and some sneezing. My mum has been coughing for 2 weeks. I feel that i am having flu/cold too. Can I take Clarinase (off the pharmacy) if I have running nose during PEP? I have taken Clarinase before. Will the Clarinase affect the Isentress and Truvada medication? Thank you.

Hello and thanks for posting.

It's important to be mindful of potential interactions between HIV medications and other medications or supplements.

In your case, all's good. There are no interactions of any significance.

Be well, BY
