Kaletra
Ritonavir/lopinavir Soln Oral


This combination product is used, along with other medications, to treat Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection. These medications belong to a class of drugs called protease inhibitors that block an enzyme needed for HIV to multiply. Decreasing the amount of HIV in your body helps reduce complications, such as infections (opportunistic types such as pneumocystis pneumonia). This product does not cure HIV.
