side effects of ZIAGEN
Apr 4, 2003

I have been taking ZIAGEN for about 10 months now and now am having problem with my heart. Has there been any report side effects of this kind with ziagen? I have no history of any heart problem before now.

Response from Dr. Henry

Data to date hasn't implicated Ziagen with cardiac problems. There have been some reports of cardiomyopathy possibly associated with nucleoside agents so further evaluation and discussion with your HIV doc are a good idea. KH

Sustiva, dizzyness, and changing meds
Combivir/Fortovase or Combivir/Sustiva
