I am taking Kaletra and AZT
May 1, 2012

I am getting serious side effects of vomiting , its my 6th day , what do i do .I started taking it 10hrs post exposure after being sticked with a lancet from an HIV positive patient .

Response from Dr. Henry

That regimen is often difficult to tolerate for NPEP (post exposure prophlaxis)--I would discuss with doctor overseeing your situation to see if anti-nausea meds could be provided or an alternative regimen considered (nausea generally clears quickly once meds are stopped). KH
