viagra and meds
Mar 30, 2000

Is it dangerous for me to be taking viagra with my hiv meds?

Response from Dr. Henry

Viagra may have a dangerous interaction with the protease inhibitors such as ritonavir or indinavir. The concern is that the protease inhibitors may prevent the liver from clearing the Viagra so that the levels could be elevated for a long time. Thus, dosing has to be done carefully and on the low side. Keith Henry, M.D.
