Jan 12, 2001

how can i find more information about the negative side effects of taking norvir??? does it do harm to the liver?? can it make other drugs more powerful with taking norvir?? please advise thanks for all your information bruce

Response from Dr. Bartlett

Bruce, Norvir is a powerful medication which can produce side effects. These side effects are usually dose-related, meaning they become more common at higher doses. Potential side effects can include nausea, diarrhea, tingling around your mouth, changes in your taste and elevations in your lipids. Sometimes Norvir can affect the liver, and it certainly can affect the metabolism of other drugs.

John A. Bartlett, M.D.

what could it be??? JB
Lipodystrophy and STI JB
