Side effects
Aug 21, 2005

I recently switched from Epivir, Videx and Kaletra to Lexiva, Norvir and Travada because I felt the Kaletra was making me gain alot of weight. Now my left leg is constantly tingling and itches but I don't see where this is a side effect. There is no rash or redness but it's constant. Should I go back to my other meds or do you think this will eventually stop. I haven't been able to sleep and having been missing work.

Response from Dr. Henry

Localized pain/discomfort as you describe would generally not be due to one of your HIV drugs. A careful history and neurologic evaluation may help identify what could be causing your symptoms in the left leg.KH

CD4 and VL numbers
study suggests DMG boosts CD4 count
