lymphadenopathy 2h following first stribild tablet

Jul 26, 2013

CD4<100 vl300k dx 15 days ago after a salivary gland issue prompted a test. i progressed pretty fast with neg elisa 2007.

i just took my 1st tab of stribild tonight, took a pill at 812 pm. it is now 1030 and my right inguinal node is swollen >1cm and my neck nodes feel full. i wasn't even palpating them, i just went to scratch an "itch" and noticed incidentally. i have never had LAD before. i have no other symptoms.

have you ever heard of this? i am praying its a sign that it's working and that i will have robust immune recovery , i think it's way too soon for IRIS and i have no other signs of a rash/allergy.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thank you for posting.

Nope, never heard of this as a side effect. Indeed, other than the unlikely allergic reaction, it would not be likely that lymphadenopathy is related to your medications.

If your symptoms persist, I'd suggest speaking to your care provider.

Be well, BY
