I suffer from constipation, I try my best to eat healthy, lots of fruit veg, drink lots of water execise 5-6 times a week still I battle with constipation. What can I do curretly on Truvada, Norvir and Reyataz

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

HIV medications aren't usually associated with constipation, though it's possible that your symptoms could be.

Seems like you're doing the right things with diet and exercise. Since these efforts haven't improved your symptoms, it's probably time to see your care provider to be further evaluated.

Be well, BY
