FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: LOPINAVIR; RITONAVIR

User Comments:

Kaletra (lopinavir / ritonavir) for HIV Infection: “Since I’ve been changed to Viread/ Epivir/ + Kaletra, my viral load has remained constantly Undetecable for ~4 Yrs; my T-cell count went from 210 to 325 very quickly; in the last year, with no changes to anything my V-load remains undetectable & my T-cell count has soared to 725!!! Sounds fantastic. However, during this same period of rapid TC rise I have slowly become more & more tired, weak, & my bones ache from head to toe. I no longer have the strength to ride my horse or even do the yard work. My Doctor believes I may be suffering from Lactic Acidosis. But he is convinced that it is because of the Viread ~ NOT because of the Kaletra. I will now be replacing Viread with Abacavir & CONTINUE taking Kaletra. Hope it works.”

For HIV Infection: “Although I have only been on Kaletra for a short time, side effects have been minimal. The once daily dosage is easy to comply with. Being able to take the pills with or without food is also convenient.”
