Response from Dr. Henry
It would be unusual for drug related neuropathy to localize in the manner you described. I suggest an evaluation by a neurologist to determine the nature of your neuropathy. If the opinion is that the drugs could be contributing then switching off the zerit (and possible the 3TC) might be a consideration. KH
