numbness on hands, is a side effect of zerit and epivir?
Mar 16, 2002

i started on zerit and epivir after having billirubin high. i was before with combivir and rescriptor. i felt last days numbness on my hand and little pain. it will be temporary. i will call my doctor next week. thanks. x

Response from Dr. Henry

Usually neuropathy due to zerit (D4T) and/or 3TC (epivir) begins in the feet and not the hands. Unlikely to be your HIV drugs if only your hands are involved. KH

is Questran safe for lipids
policosanol for lipids
