Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for your post from India.
Without knowing what medications your taking, it's tough for me to figure out if the gastrointestinal symptoms you're experiencing are due to meds or something else. Excess gas and burping are not commonly associated with commonly used HIV medications, but in either event, it's worth discussing your symptoms with your health care provider.
Write back with your medications and I'd be happy to discuss further.
