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
