Coming off Trizivir

Oct 6, 2005

Dear Gerald Thank you for your encouraging response. I stopped taking Trizivir 2 days ago am going to London tomorrow to see the top HIV specialist in the UK about a new therapy. I am still a zombie with glazed eyes and looking drugged out. It took me the whole morning to pack. How long before the mind/brain gets back to some normality after stopping the treatment ? Thanks George

Response from Dr. Pierone

The time to resolution of medication-related side effects is variable, but in most cases, neurologic side effects tend to wear off within a week. Give us an update on you status at some point. Best of luck to you!
