The prescription drug Kaletra treats HIV in adults and children aged 14 years and older. Kaletra is always taken in conjunction with other HIV medications. HIV causes AIDS—acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Kaletra has not been studied in children younger than 14 days old.
The product Kaletra contains both lopinavir and ritonavir. To help control HIV infection, this product is used in combination with other HIV medications. Kaletra helps to lower the viral load in the patient's body and improve their immune system.
In addition, patients may also experience reduced HIV complications (such as new infections, cancer). Kaletra belongs to a class of anti-HIV agents known as HIV protease inhibitors.
This medication should be taken with or without food once or twice a day as directed by the doctor. All tablets should be swallowed whole. The tablets should not be crushed, broken, or chewed.
It is recommended that Kaletra tablets be taken daily at a dose of 400/100 mg (two tablets of 200/50 mg). Two doses of 400/100 mg (5 mL) of Kaletra oral solution are recommended per day.
Patients will need a dosage that accords with their medical condition, response to treatment, and any other medications. One should notify their doctor or pharmacy about all the other medications they are currently taking, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines.
Children's Kaletra dosages are based on their weight, height, and age. This medication (and other HIV medications) must be taken exactly as prescribed by a doctor or pediatrician. Kaletra medications must be taken on time.
This medication should be taken at regular intervals to achieve the best results. If patients want to remember to take this medication, they can consider taking it simultaneously (s) every day.
The dose of this drug must not be abruptly increased or decreased, and patients should not stop taking it—or any other HIV medications—except when instructed to do so by a physician. By doing so, the amount of virus may increase, making it more difficult to treat. Side effects might also worsen.
Kaletra has been shown to reduce viral load (the amount of virus present in the blood) to extremely low levels (below 400 copies per milliliter).
It is possible to take it with or without food. It works best in combination with other anti-HIV products.
This drug appears to have far more beneficial effects than the side effects it has been documented to cause.
It is mostly tolerable and has a low risk of discontinuation among patients using it.
Common side effects of Kaletra include:
Patients taking Kaletra should immediately call their doctor if they experience the below side effects:
Many medications interact with lopinavir/ritonavir. Certain medicines such as fosamprenavir and tipranavir, and orlistat interact with this drug.
Lopinavir/ritonavir can be removed by other medications, which could affect how it functions. There are numerous examples of anti-cancer drugs, including rifampin, boceprevir, and apalutamide.
In addition, lopinavir/ritonavir may also impact how other medications work. The following drugs are affected:
Pregnant women should only take Kaletra under a physician's supervision. These medications are not known to pass into breast milk, but HIV can be transmitted through breast milk.
To be eligible for an antiretroviral pregnancy registry, patients should discuss this with their healthcare provider if they take Kaletra during pregnancy.
Among the ingredients of Kaletra oral medicines is alcohol (ethanol). During pregnancy, a certain level of alcohol exposure is not safe for women. Pregnant women should tell their healthcare provider if they become pregnant while using KALETRA.
Birth control may be less effective with Kaletra. KALETRA should not be used by women who are planning on getting pregnant except under the close supervision of their doctor.
