Doctor Prescribing Kaletra
Oct 9, 2002

My doctor is talking about putting my on Kaletra. I know very little about the drug and would like to know how it works, what you recommend be taken with it?

Response from Dr. Boyle

Well, Kaletra is a very potent and effective drug in the protease inhibitor category. When combined with other drugs, generally 2 nucleoside analogues, it forms a part of a highly active antiretroviral therapy regimen (a "cocktail") that is extremely effective at suppressing HIV. You should discuss Kaletra with your doctor and you can search The Body or other websites to read more about it.

vomiting, meds or not?
