HIV/AIDS stress!
Sep 2, 2005

I am taking HIV/AIDS anti drugs and they affect my liver, does this mean I die soon?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I'd rather think that it's premature to assume that because your having liver side effects that you won't have any benefits from any HIV medications. The details depend a lot on the type and extent of liver toxicities, whether HIV medications or other conditions (like hepatitis virus) are affecting your health.

Hang in there, this usually isn't anywhere near the end of the road for my patients. BY

Need to change meds fast due to first signs of lipo
