Increased Side Effects From New Norvir Tab

Sep 25, 2011

I recently switched to new norvir tbs. I had some yellowing of the eyes with original norvir, but I now have noticed an increase in yellowing as well as darker urine. Has this been reported by others? Do I need to inform my doctor ASAP?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

There typically aren't any significant differences in side effect profile between the capsule (old) and tablet (new) formulations of ritonavir (NORVIR). If you have new onset jaundice (yellow skin) or icterus (yellow eyes), you should definitely let your doctor know.

Hope that helps. Be well, BY
