Lopinavir/Ritonavir (LPV/R) (40mg/10mg Per Capsule) Oral Pellets

LPV/r oral pellets are a better tasting alternative to LPV/r syrup for the treatment of HIV in children who cannot tolerate the LPV/r syrup. The pellets are used in combination
with other ARVs:

  • They have an improved taste, are easy to swallow and don’t need to be stored in the fridge (they can be stored at room temperature)
  • As this is a new product, healthcare workers must demonstrate how to administer oral pellets to caregivers (instructions are given below)
