Side Effects of Stribil
Jul 12, 2013

I started Stribil when it cam out last year. I know it's a new drug and not all side effects have been reported yet but have you heard about itching (no rash or dry skin)-itching is from within, mostly on feet and hands. Also, have you heard of increased bruising as another side effect? Could there be other drugs or over the counter meds along with Stibil that could cause these symptoms. I never had this with my other anti-vitals Thank you.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

I've not heard of itching (without rash) as a side effect of Stribild.

To help sort out the possibilities, I'd suggest stopping any unnecessary over the counters and supplements. If the symptom persists, I'd talk to your care provider.

Be well, BY
