High its been a month since I started Stocrin 600 and Combivir. My medication has been changed from 3tc,zerit,purbac and stocrin due to a side effect of pin and needles on my feet.The problem I have now is that I have alot of head aches what can I do?

Response from Dr. Young

Thank you for your post.

Headaches are a not uncommon side effect of the AZT in Combivir- often they improve with time, but after one month, I'd be afraid to predict this. Sometimes simple pain medications, like acetominophen or ibuprofen can help, especially if taken on a regular basis.

It would be important to discuss your symptoms with your doctor.

If the side effects persist and are severe, yet another switch in medications might be feasible, depending on which medications are available in your country.

Best of health, BY
