Hi Doc, my doctor started me on Combivir,Nevirapine and Purbac. Generally I'm doing well but I'm getting chubby cheeks and bigger tummy. What could be causing this and can something be done

Response from Dr. Horwath

The "bigger tummy" may be a side effect of your medications. Discuss the problem with your doctor to see if there is anything that can be done to adjust your treatment and avoid this side effect.
