ADVANTAGES: An effective, serious drug
DISADVANTAGES: Expensive, many side effects, not available everywhere
So this new virus reached our family. Husband brought from work. The husband suffered easily, one might say asymptomatic. I needed treatment. I refused hospitalization, as all hospitals were overcrowded and my condition was not serious. Like the flu. There was no pneumonia. There was a fever, severe conjunctivitis, dry cough, lack of taste and a temperature of 38-38.5 degrees.
But I was prescribed home treatment. Kaletra was discharged. It was problematic to buy it. Not only is the whole family in isolation, but also this drug is sold in the only pharmacy in the other side of the city and costs about 7,000 rubles!
When I began to read the instructions and reviews for Kaletra, I was, to put it mildly, in shock. It is a powerful anti-HIV drug. The load on the body is colossal.
But, frightened by the consequences of covid, she decided to drink as prescribed by the doctor. She took it along with gripferon, which, by the way, was taken by all of us, including children.
The tablets are huge, brown in color, the taste is disgusting, when you try to swallow, you get vomiting.
After swallowing, the bitter taste remains in the mouth for a long time.
From the side effects of Kaletra, I remembered severe problems with the gastrointestinal tract, constant nausea, flatulence, pain in the intestines.
I cannot say for sure that Kaletra helped from the coronavirus or the body itself coped with it, but I still recommend treatment if your doctor prescribes this drug for covid or HIV.
Took 2 weeks before the test result was negative.
At present, 1.5 months have passed since recovery. I still feel tired, short of breath, if I go up the stairs.
I wish everyone not to get sick!
