Crixivan Bloating.
Jun 11, 1998

Is there anything available that relieves this side effect. Even if temporary....I don't want to stop taking Crixivan. 917 T-cells and nondetectable for 28 months now.

Response from Dr. Currier

It sounds like you have had an excellent response and that trying to reduce the bloating is worth exploring. There are soe new guidelines for food and crixivan that allow you to take the drug with certain lowfat foods, dry toast, crackers, tortillas to name a few. This may help prevent the bloating. Its worth a try. Ask your doctor for a list of foods that can be taken with Crixivan.


Is Fortovase strong enough?
