Lopinavir Ritonavir

Lopinavir is available in the United States only as a fixed-dose combination with ritonavir (Kaletra). In this regimen, a low dose of ritonavir is used to inhibit the rapid inactivation of lopinavir by CYP3A4. Side effects, which are generally mild, include diarrhea, nausea, asthenia, and headache.
