Discuss with your doctor to see if other conditions can be contributing (such as gut infection, lactose intolerance, non-HIV meds). Loose stools are fairly common with your regimen-often get better with time and if taken with meals. Increased fiber intake, calcium supplements, drugs like loperamide or diphenoxylate/atropine can be helpful for select patients to decrease frequency of loose stools. For a small/modest percentage of patients the loose stools are persistent and very annoying such that an alternative regimen may need to be considered. KH
