Norvir and Metoclopramide
Jul 20, 2012

Dear Keith Henry, I got the Norvir, Truvada and Atazanavir treatment in The Netherlands. I got metoclopramide for nausea. I have read on this website the warming not to combine Norvir and Metoclopramide. Can you tell me what effect this will bring of why it is not a good combination. I would be very happy with your answer.

Response from Dr. Henry

To my knowledge it is OK to use metocloperamide with ritonavir with minimal concern about a drug interaction-if any reader knows of a reference suggesting otherwise please post. KH

skipping a day on medication
for how long one regimen works?
