AZT-related nausea
Feb 7, 2004

What can I take to relieve the symptoms of AZT-related nausea? I drive for a living therefor I am subject to DOT random drug testing.

Response from Dr. Pierone

Why not take a different antiretroviral that doesn't make you nauseated? Taking pills to combat side effects of other pills is not the preferred approach. There are now about 23 different formulations of HIV medications that are FDA approved. Talk to your doctor about an alternative agent. Nowadays it is rare that AZT cannot be replaced. Good luck!
