Hello and thanks for your post.
In general,though most HIV medications are very well tolerated, some people do experience side effects in the first days. Many of the side effects of medications improve in the first weeks of treatment.
If your's don't improve, I'd suggest talking to your doctor or health care provider. I'd no longer necessary to put up with unwanted side effects; we have a wide range of effective treatment options.
Be well, BY
