HIV meds and changes in reading ability
Jul 1, 2012
Does HIV drugs affect my ability to read? I find it very difficult to read lately.
Response from Dr. Fawcett
Thanks for writing. I don't know of any studies relating changes in reading ability to HIV drugs or HIV itself, but it is well-documented that there can be changes in cognitive functioning as a result of both. Speak with your physician about these changes. You may be referred for neuropsychological testing which could document any cognitive changes that might be occurring.
