Hiv Pos & short-term memory loss
Aug 6, 2001

I am on Viracept and combivir and am undetectible with t cells 480 i seem to get short term memory loss is that from the meds? what else could happen to me due to the toxic meds? I have been on meds since Feb 99 when i tested pos vl 63,000 and tcells 317.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I don't think this is due to the meds. Short-term memory loss can be associated with HIV (called HIV encephalopathy or dementia), although it would be unusual in people with well-suppressed HIV. Ask your doctor to check you out.

nonstop diarrhea?
alergic reaction to fruit and meds?
