i am currently taking part in a clinical trial where i take Kaletra and Epzicom. i am having problems with Kaletra's side effects including loose stools and gas. are there any steps i can take to lessen these effects or anything that has helped others with the same issues?

Response from Dr. Henry

Taking Kaletra with meals, use of fiber or oat bran tablets, calcium supplements, and over the counter anti-diarrheal medications (such as Immodium) or presription medications (such as Lomotil) can help some patients with Kaletra related loose stools. KH
