what are the side effects to antiretroviral drugs for pregnant women
Response from Dr. Henry
The side effects of antiretroviral therapy in pregnant women are similar to other patient populations (for discussion of particular drugs see the body discussion on specific drugs). Pregnant patients may experience more nausea/vomiting than other populations and may have a slightly higher rate of liver problems. The ACTG is conducting a study to carefully look at side effects of antiretroviral therapy in pregnant women with a focus on metabolic issues. KH
