kalerta and truvada
Apr 19, 2009

does kaletra and truvada play apart in depression and having no motivation

Response from Dr. Henry

Truvada + Kaletra have generally not been linked to directly causing depression. Depression and low motivation is common in the general population and even more so in HIV+ persons so it can be tough to clearly elucidate whether a particular drug triggered an episode of severe depression. You should discuss with your HIV provider and consider mental health assessment/counseling to sort out what factors may be contributing to your malaise. KH
