Complera after 60 days
May 29, 2012

I started complera 60 days ago. I still get a bloated feeling and gas. I feel full even if my stomach is empty. I go to the DR. thursday may 31, should I ask him to change med or do you feel with time, this will subside?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

I generally expect that pesky initial side effects are going to have resolved as much as possible by 1-2 months after starting. There might be some improvement in your gastrointestinal symptoms by varying the time of your medication dose or the type of meal that you eat (as required with Complera).

I'd certainly discuss your symptoms with your doctor- it might be time for a change.


response appreciated
Negative PCR with many symptoms
