facial wasting and meds
Dec 24, 2008
i am on truvada, lexiva and norvir. it is my 2nd combo (after bad side effects from initial cocktail.) i am experiencing facial wasting to the point where i am scheduled for a temp fill that gradually goes away... is my wasting directly attributable to my meds? if so, what could i switch too?
Response from Dr. Pierone
This regimen is not known for producing facial wasting, although we do not understand all the factors that lead to facial lipoatrophy. Based on the available evidence there is really no indication for a change.
