Hi I have just been given KALETRA and COMBIVIR and I just wanted to know what the chances of hair loss are and body fat reshaping if it only a 28 day course Thanks

Response from Dr. Young


While PEP can be associated with short term side effects, like headache, nausea or diarrhea, I wouldn't associate a 28 day treatment with hair loss and body fat changes.

Best of health to you, BY

Switching from Atripla to Reyataz + Truvada + Norvir
forgot to take pills ..
