Facial wasting and Fuzeon
Feb 26, 2004

I am currently using Fuzeon along with several oral meds. Before I started it my cheeks were becoming quite sunken. I have been injecting Fuzeon into my cheeks once a week (half in each cheek) and it has restored the pits. Do you think there is any long term problem with doing this? Also, I suspect that once I stop my cheeks will return to their sunken shape. Is that correct?

Response from Dr. Moyle

I have heard of one other person doing this although it is not recommended as the absorption of Fuzeon from this site is not known. Fuzeon injection site reactions resolve over time so I would anticipate that the observed benefit would decline over time.
