Can I Take My Medicines With Kaletra?

Some Statin Medications
Kaletra should never be combined with lovastatin or simvastatin, due to the risk of dangerous side effects. Since Kaletra may increase the level of atorvastatin or rosuvastatin in your blood, your healthcare provider may recommend a lower atorvastatin or rosuvastatin dosage.
 
St. John's Wort
Because St. John's wort can greatly reduce the level of Kaletra in your blood, these medications should never be taken together.
 
Tenofovir
Kaletra can increase the level of tenofovir in your blood. Your healthcare provider may need to lower your tenofovir dosage to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Trazodone (Desyrel) or Trazodone ER (Oleptro) 
Kaletra can increase the level of trazodone in your blood. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
