Kaletra Overdose
Jul 13, 2007

I accidently took my second dosage of Kaletra then took it agin thinking that I forgot to take it.

So, I took a total of six Kaletra's in one day.

Will this have any adverse effects on me?

It won't cause any drug resistance will it?

Response from Dr. Henry

There should not be a problem from taking 6 Kaletras/24 hours on one occasion as you describe though some patients may have some more stomach/gut symptoms (increased gas/bloating, loose stools) for several days. KH

Taste salt in mouth
The Doctors on here are not so knowledable in my opinion.
