stockcrin & combivir

Feb 1, 2008

Hi is the combivir take the fat to the lower body to the upper? what is the side effect of this two drug.

Response from Dr. Henry

The AZT in Combivir has been most linked to generally slow fat loss from extremities and face. Combivir + Stocrine (efavirenz) has had modest linkage to fat increases in abdominal area. In US alternative drugs to Combivir are increasingly used (typically Truvada or Epzicom) due to both efficacy and less side effects (including less fat/lipid problems). KH
