I feel like I AM DYING
Apr 4, 2006

Dr.Bob I am havig trouble breathing, have severe bowel problems for weeks and have had nausea and dizziness. I am an alcoholic and am taking combivir and sustiva. I also have depression and am taking zoloft. I need advice

Response from Dr. Frascino


Sorry, there is very little I can offer over the Internet other than to advise you to contact your HIV specialist without delay. A thorough evaluation for opportunistic infections and drug side effects/toxicities is warranted. I also have some concern using Sustiva in folks who are experiencing significant depression.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
