Side Effects
Nov 11, 2007

What are the side effects of Kaletra and Truvada? When used together. Thank you.

Response from Dr. Henry

The major side effects are stomach bloating, gas, some cramping, loose stools). Kaletra increase the levels of tenofovir (in Truvada). That often is not a problem but has to be kept in mind in certain patients (ie with some degree of kidney dysfunction). KH

Atripla and Psyllium Husk
conclusive testing?!?!
