Tyricten ,atazanavir and norvir safe in pregnancy
Oct 17, 2012

Hi,I have been living with the disease for over 14 yrs,been undetectable for 6 yrs,cd4 above 1000, am now pregnant and on tyricten,atazanavir and norvir,are these meds safe for my baby or should I consider switching?Will I need to take AZT for a c section delivery?

Response from Dr. Henry

Or clinic has often used Truvada (Tyricten is generic form) and ritoanavir/atazanavir during pregnancy with good outcomes. Most of our patients achieve HIV levels less than detection level and have a vaginal delivery unless prior C-section or problemn with labor. With documented undetectable HIV levels use of AZT during labor may be unnecessary but historically is often still used. KH

PEP and extreme fatigue
cant seem to find the right ARV combo
