Viramune+Combivir side effects: for how long?
Jan 30, 2004

I just started a treatment with Viramune+Combivir and I have nauseas, dizzyness and tireness. -For how long I will have this side effects? -In this treatment there is a posibility of having body wating? Thanks

Response from Dr. Henry

In my experience a significant fraction of persons starting that regimen will experience those side effects for several weeks-a month. Usually then it starts to get better. Often your doc can prescribe something to help with the side effects. If they persist > 4-8 weeks then a discussion about alternative options would be reasonable. KH

Long term effects?
does smoking marijuana ?
