constant headaches
Jul 6, 2002

hello- i have been experiencing constant headaches for about 2 months now. i take large doses of ibuprophen to help relieve them. i am currently on viread/sustiva/epivir. any suggestions? thank you!

Response from Dr. Henry

You may want to see a neurologist to evaluate the nature/character of your headaches to see if better treatment can be based on a more specific diagnosis(many possibilities both HIV and non-HIV related). Some small subset of patients may have persistent headaches from Sustiva > Viread > Epivir in my experience. Switching your meds around if that is an option may be worth considering as well. KH
