Dear doctor, thanks for your commitment on people like us, My question is I started my hiv meds on june 1st 09, which is Viraday (Indian Atripla) all the side effects like drowsiness rashes were observed at 15 days of start, latter it disappeared, I was feeling great until recent where I m experiencing the pain and swelling on my right knee, if not it is always, but when I walk for some distance more than 1 km. Is this pain and light swelling at knee is side effect or general weakness

Hello and thanks for your post.
I'd give a brief course of over-the-counter dosed acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen a try. If your symptoms persist, I would suggest contacting your healthcare provider for further evaluation.
Be well and thanks for reading.
