can an increase in dosage cause new SE?
Nov 6, 2002

I am the adoptive mom of two HIV+ boys. Recently one guy, (3yo) increased his doses for growth, but no change in meds. (AZT,3TC,Viramune)I have noticed a profound decrease in his appetite and increase in diarrhea. Can this be from the med change.

Response from Dr. Henry

That is possible but would be somewhat unusual with the meds he is taking. I would make sure his HIV doc evaluates him soon if those symptoms persist. KH
