Response from Dr. Henry
Both Kaletra and Viread can cause loose stools. Retrovir may not help the fat problems from Zerit much . I would discuss with your HIV specialist whether other drugs are an options for you and whether your loose stools can be evaluated or better treated. Diet and exercise and hormone evauations may help some. KH
