|tipranavir and lipodystrophy
Aug 17, 2004
hello-I have heard that tipranavir is nearing approval.One of my current meds is Kaletra-I have some area's of fat redistribution. I am wondering if once approved, if tipranavir is expected to have a better profile regarding lipodystrophy side effects?
Response from Dr. Henry
I wouldn't count on it particularly since it will generally be used with ritonavir. Lexiva or Invirase or Reyataz with ritonavir may be more fat friendly than Kaletra if that is the sole issue why you would like to switch off the Kaletra. KH
Have you used fenofibrate to treat hypertrigyceridemia?
