Kaletra Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Kaletra is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Alfuzosin
Kaletra should not be combined with alfuzosin, as this may increase the amount of alfuzosin in the blood to dangerous levels.
 
Anticoagulation Medications
Kaletra may affect warfarin, and close monitoring is required while taking these two medications together. Kaletra may increase the levels of rivaroxaban in your blood, increasing the risk of dangerous bleeding. It is not recommended that these medications be taken together.

Kaletra may decrease the level of atovaquone in your blood, perhaps making it less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to increase your atovaquone dosage to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Beta Blockers
Combining Kaletra with a beta blocker may increase the risk of a certain irregular heart rhythm known as heart block. This may potentially be quite dangerous. If you take such medications together, your healthcare provider may want to monitor your heart to check for this problem.
