I was having bad chest pain, and went to the emergency room, they keep me over night, and said it was a Gall Bladder attack, and I should have it removed, I'm going to have this done as an outpatient. My question is if Trizivir could be the reason my Gall Bladder is not working the way it should?

Response from Dr. Henry

Gallbladder problems are common in the general population and perhaps increased in HIV+ patients. I am unaware of any particular association between Trizivir and increased gallbladder disease. KH
