side effects and symptoms
May 27, 2009

what are the side effects and symptoms when taking Kaletra and Combivir together while being in the first trimester of pregnancy?

Response from Dr. Henry

I have used that combination fairly often in pregnant patients in our clinic. Major side effects are gastrointestinal (bloating, gas, loose stools, and nausea) which are generally managable but can add to the stomach symptoms already experienced by some pregnant women. KH

Side effect?
Is Zocor safe for HIV patients?
