Viread and Sustiva interaction
Jan 17, 2005

My 13 yoa daughter is + diagonesed when she was 4 1/2. We have recently moved, the dr.'s now are talking about changing her medications that she has been on for about 2 years. Saying that there is some type of interaction with the meds. My daughter is on DDIec, Viread, Sustiva and Kaletra. Any information would be help full.

Response from Dr. Henry

Sustivas can lower the Kaletra levels so dosing can be tricky. Recently there has been concern about a negative interaction between ddI and tenofovir (I rarely use that combination together) which may decrease CD4 counts and/or decrease effectiveness. KH
