pregnaacy y aluvia
Apr 23, 2010

Is it safe that I take Aluvia when I am pregnant? What side effects can I expect from this new drug? Thank you

Response from Dr. Henry

Aluvia (Kaletra in US) is a recommended drug for use in pregnancy so it is generally safe and effective for mother and baby. Major side effects are gastrointestinal (gas, nausea,loose stools) which occur in at least half of pregnant patients. KH

is it possible to have a baby without infecting partner and baby?
