Trazodone HCL with HIV meds

Question

Hi Doc,

I was wondering if it is safe to take Trazodone HCL for slight insomnia along with HIV Meds: Truvada, Norvir, and Reyataz. My partners doctor prescribed this to him because he has not been sleeping well.

Thanks.

Answer

Hello and thanks for posting.

It's ok to use trazodone to help with sleep while taking HIV medications. As is always the case, I recommend using the lowest effective dose needed.

Be well, BY
