mouth numbness from Norvir - JB
Oct 4, 2000

Is there anything can be done to alleviate numbness around the mouth caused by Norvir (in a Norvir/Invirase regimen)?

Response from Dr. Bartlett

Mouth numbness from Norvir can be very troublesome. In many patients the numbness is related to the Norvir dose; higher doses can lead to more numbness. You might want to review with your health care provider the possibility of decreasing your Norvir dose, and increasing the Fortovase dose to see if this helps.
