|PEP and coffee and alchohol
Mar 15, 2013
I never did ask the doctor if i can drink coffee or alchohol while on the medication. 1. I usually have just one coffee drink a day 2. Might have 2 or 3 social drinks every 4 days
Any issues with that? I am on Truvada and aluvia
thanks again for this great site
Response from Dr. Henry
Aluvia (Kaletra in US) often cause some stomach distress worst in first weeks than may be aggravated by caffeine and alcohol so would watch for that. Some patients seem to get more sensitive to those substances when taking Aluvia for usually no major concern with use at levels you describe. KH
