|muscle weakness from combivar
Nov 4, 2003
my husband got stuck with a needle and was put on combivar would that make his muscles weak to the point of getting a hernia from lifting
| Response from Dr. Henry
A short course of Combivir would be unlikely to result in weak muscles/hernia. AZT can cause a myopathy but from the details you provide I doubt there is a direct effect of the HIV drugs. Many patients might get general complaints such as a stomach ache and fatigue during the first month on Combivir but muscule weakness/hernia would not be expected. KH
