Can Someone with a Sulfa Allergy Take Reyataz?
« on: August 21, 2007, 01:24:15 PM »
I notice the medical name for Reyataz is atazanavir sulfate.  If I've had an allergic reaction to Bactrim does that mean Reyataz is off limits?

Sulfate and sulfonamide (="sulfa") are two very different things in chemical terms. While allergies to sulfa drugs are not uncommon, there are no known allergies versus sulfate.
