i am on trivzir and viramune. i am suffering from facial wasting. my doctor has decided to replace azt with tenofivir. do you think this will be kinder to my face?
Response from Mr. Vergel
It is hard to tell, but I am bised that it will. AZT can also cause lipoatrophy, although not at the same rate as Zerit. I got off Zerit 4 years ago and things improved a little. I got off AZT a year ago and replaced it with Viread and I can not see the veins in my legs anymore. This is only anecdotal information, though. Nelson
