May 18, 2006

I am taking videx + viread + kaletra , trying to get pregnent, the kaletra is temporary after giving berth i will get back to stockrin, i read her that taking videx during pregnancy is dangerous, i have no other option and my dr. tried to relax me and sent me this atricle saying its safe taking videx during pregnancy, but taking videx+zerit during pregnancy is dangerous, while i am only on videx, am i in danger with my current combination?i am si confsed and frustrated cause i have no other option at the moment beside my current combination. please help.

Response from Dr. Henry

If you are already taking meds and doing well on Videx it seems like that your chances to have a new problem on Videx may be lower than a person just starting meds including Videx. I would often continue in a situation like you describe and simply monitor clinically and lab wise more carefully. KH
