Side effects

Jan 23, 2006


I am on Viramune and aspen lamzid twice daily for 3 months now ,i have heartburn almost all tha time and an awful taste in my mouth is that normal?


Response from Dr. Young

Honey- Thanks for your post.

Aspen Lamzid (AZT/3TC, known as Combivir here) and Viramune is a very reasonable first-line treatment. The heartburn and sour taste in your mouth are both related to stomach acid-- it's not normal, though not uncommon, to have these symptoms.

Simple antacids may help, but I'd discuss the symptoms with your doctor.

Good luck, let us know what happens in the months to come. BY
