stomach pains
May 4, 2005

i am on kaletra and combivir...the worst of the side effects i think are already over...i have however been waking up with stomach pains and i have no idea why. I wake up very nausiated and dont know whati can do about it

Response from Dr. Henry

Morning stomach pains that persist are not uncommon with Kaletra _ Combivir. Often it is the meds though underlying conditions can be aggravated by the meds (i.e. H pylori disease, reflux esophagitis,e tc). I often prescribe anti-nausea meds to take at night (options include marinol, reglan, compazine and others) to help out for AM nausea. If persistent and annoying than a switch to alternative meds if often considered. KH
