Oxygen ??
Apr 2, 2003

Hi: Positive 6 years current meds Zerit ( all six years) Ziagen and Viread. T's 400 plus VL below 50 . A year ago after doing some reading I asked my then Dr. if I could get a prescription for O2 ( I thought it would help at times when I felt run down and crappy) sure here is a script prn. Well I am on about my 8th bottle ) E tank) and must say when I have that feeling of "man feels like I drank a bottle of bad scotch ( don't drink or smoke year prior to diag) I lay down play some 'Space music" and do about 15 to 15 min of O2 and boy if I dont feel better. So has any research or reports on Oxygen helping with the "sides" ?

Response from Dr. Henry

No good data that I am aware of. KH
