Protease Inhibitors and Sulfa Allergy
Jul 22, 2007

I saw the question about protease inhibitors and sulfa allergies in your newsletter. Fifteen years ago I was hospitalized for ten days after having a severe allergic reaction to Bactrim. Given my history, I was worried about starting Aptivus in 2005, but I took it for one year with no problems. Obviously it's only an anecdote, but I hope it helps.

Response from Dr. Henry

Thanks for posting your experience on the matter. KH

Sulfa in Sustiva?
