Oct 14, 2011

what are the side effects of kaletra & truvada drugs? any fat related problem(lipodystrophy, buffalo hump..etc) or skin hyper pigmentation ?

Response from Dr. Henry

Most common side effects from Kaletra + Truvada or gut related (bloating, loose stools) as well as increased plasma lipids (such as triglycerides). Fat redistribtion problems can be seen though risk is modest and comparable to many other widely used regimens. Risk of side effects may be lower with some of the other ritonavir boosted protease inhibitors (ie atazanavir or darunavir). KH
