Hello Dr. I started Truvada and Isentress on 1/16/10. Other than a very mild spacey feeling I was relieved to have no other apparent side effects. This past Sat, one month later, I started feeling very cold, extremely fatigued, a mild headache and a queasy stomach (now diarrhea). If these were med side effects, would they take 4 weeks to kick in? Or perhaps I just have some sort of bug? Thanks, Mike

Hello Mike and thanks for your post.
While it's formally possible to have new side effects a month into treatment, your symtpoms don't sound as much as drug-related, but rather (as you say), a bug.
If your symptoms persist more than a few days, I'd get in contact with your doctor or health care provider.
Be well, BY
