i take the liquid form of kaleta the taste of is so bad that im considering changeing to something else but i have few opptions left and i dont tolerate the the pill form at all it really messes with my stomch is there anything i can do about the taste any suggestions would be helpful thanks very much

Response from Dr. Henry

The last time I taste sampled that liquid it tasted like cherry flavored diesel fuel. There is a new pill formulation of Kaletra under development so that might help some. Patients tell me that drinking the Kaletra after taking a drink of dense chocolate milk, chocolate syrup, or after eating a peanut butter sandwich helps sometimes. Marinol sometimes seems to help some patients.KH
