Haart Interactions with Cymbalta
Apr 13, 2005


I am on a nice once a day regimen of Viramune/Truvada and I also take diovan for high blood pressure and Testim for low testosterone.

I was recently prescibed Cymbalta by my doc after it seems as if Lexapro isn't working as well long term.

Is Cymbalta ok to take with this HAART combo?


Response from Dr. Henry

Cymbalta and Viramune probably are OK to use together though I am unaware of published drug interaction data. I have a number of patients on either NNRTIs (like Viramune) or protease inhibitors who are now taking Cymglata without obviousproblems though I think patients should be observed carefully for now.
