hi having side affects such as feeling very sketchy and itchy skin with rash after being on this med for 3 months- is this normal or should I discontinue or change ?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thank you for your post.

If your having any side effects, the first thing you should do isn't to discontinue your medications, but rather to contact your HIV healthcare provider.

After a discussion about the possible causes and treatments, then you might consider a switch to an alternative medication, assuming that the HIV medications are the culprit.
