Is Sildenafil safe to take with Isentress, Norvir and Reyataz?

Hi. I’m presently on Isentress, Norvir and Reyataz for HIV and thinking of using sildenafil (A Viagra Alternative) to help with my ED problems. Is it safe to take both HIV meds and Sildenafil at the same time?

Age: 59
Male
Medications: Isentress, Norvir and Reyataz

Viagra is a brand name of Sildenafil – so both are the same. There can be an interaction. To be safe you need to use 50% of the lowest recommended dose. Check with your doctor about your ED problems. HIV patients sometimes experience ED problems due to hormonal imbalances and low testosterone levels. These problems may be solved without the use of ED meds.
