side effects of HIV meds
Mar 11, 2014
I'm taking Tenvir and Stocrin which I noticed are not listed on this site as HIV meds. What are the side effects? I experience itching, stiffness of fingers and knee joints, numbness on the soles of my feet. My CD4 count has increased from 29 to 359 in 6 months; my viral load has decreased from over a million to a few hundred only.
Thank you for your kind attention.
Response from Mr. Vergel
Stocrin is efavirenz (lots of info on TheBody.com)
Your side effect are not the most common with this drug but we are all so different in the way we respond to medications. I am glad to hear your viral load is going down. Just make sure that it is under 50 copies/ml at least by month 6 otherwise talk to your doctor.
