Kaletra and vomiting blood
Feb 4, 2008
Someone close tome is taking Kaletra and Zidovudine, as pre-exposure treatment. Has been experiencing stomach pains and diarrhea, but now vomiting blood. What is the problem?
Thanks regards T.C
Response from Dr. Henry
Kaletra + zidovudine often can cause stomach/GI problems particularly in first weeks. Nausea and vomiting can occur. Severe vomiting can cause tears in the esophagus that can be serious. He/she needs to be seen by doctor/nurse for further evaluation. KH
