allergic to meds

Jul 11, 2011

I was recently diagnosed with HIV, and started my meds yesterday. Truvada, Rayataz, and Norvir is what my doctor put me on. All day yesterday, and so far today, the left side of my body, mostly my face, I have been having numb, burning, stabing pains.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Sorry to hear of your situation; while you are probably having side effects from your medications, they don't sound like an allergic reaction.

I'd strongly suggest contacting your doctor to discuss further.

Be well, BY
