Slow emptying stomach after severe sero-conversion illness

Re: Slow Emptying stomach after severe sero-conversion illness.
Thanks for your answer.
I worked through the rash with Sustiva using Claritin 10 mg BID over two weeks, had only one strange dream and have not had the depression return. I have a lot of trouble with dizzy spells (not vertigo) that are unpredicatable and not clearly related to Sustiva. - (recent brain) MRI is normal.
My numbers are quite good after 1 month on Epivir/Viread and Sustiva (CD4 470 47 and VL 224) so I don't want to change.
Thanks again. John

Thanks for the follow up. It sounds like things are going well and I think that you are correct with your approach. Again, it is rare for symptoms that develop with acute HIV infection to become permanent, especially as the immune system reconstitutes over time. Good luck!
