How long side effect will last?
Jul 16, 2008
I'm now taking Kaletra+Lamivudine+Tenofovir, side effect is diarrhea. I 'd like to know for how long does it last normally??
Response from Dr. Henry
A significant percentage of patients develop some degree (often modest) of loose stools/increased gas on a Kaletra based regimen. Often the gut seems to adjust and the problem diminishes. For persistant GI side effects interventions like calcium supplements, fiber tablets, yogurt supplements, or drugs like loperamide can provide variable symptomatic benefit (often a trial and error process needed to find the best management strategy for a given patient).
