The effects of this drug seem to greatly outway the documented side effects (nausea, diarhea, etc). My results of using this Protease inhibitor along with an anti-retro-viral (Truvada) has been very satifactory. Controling HIV/AIDS....

I FIRST STARTED ON KALETRA BEFORE IT WAS APPROVED BY THE FDA, ON CLINICAL TRIALS. MY VIRAL LOAD BEFORE KALETRA WAS SUPER HIGH AND I WAS SICK ALL THE TIME. THE TRIAL WAS A LAST DITCH EFFORT TO SAVE MY LIFE. WITH IN 3-4 MONTHS I WAS UNDETECTABLE AND STILL REMAIN SO AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. I STILL WORK FULL TIME, (40-50 HOURS A WEEK). BEST OF ALL, I HAVE HAD NO SIDE EFFECTS WITH KALETRA. I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE LONG TERM POSSIBLE EFFECTS IN THE FUTURE. I SUGGEST EVERYONE TO TRY KALETRA. IT WORKS FOR ME AND IT WORKS FOR MY PARTNER OF 13 YEARS AS WELL. WE BOTH TAKE KALETRA WITH TRUVADA. CD4 NUMBERS ARE TOTALLY NORMAL.
