Combivir and Nerve Problems
Jan 17, 2000

Any info on Combivir and/or Hiv itself relating to nerve problems? i.e.neuropathy, conductive hearing loss, orbital nerve damage, etc.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

HIV itself is associated with peripheral neuropathy. Other nucleoside analogues, like ddI, d4T and ddC can also cause this. I know of no connection between Combivir (AZT +3TC)and this problem.
