I WANT TO KNOW IF THE DRUGS FOR THE HIV\AIDS HAS ANY SIDE EFFECT
Response from Dr. Henry
Yes all of the drugs used to treat HIV can cause side effects. For details you can look up individual drugs on this website or go to www.tpan.com or www.aidsinfonet.org
Prior to effective HIV drugs my AIDS patients suffered enormously developing 4-5 AIDS defining conditions that ultimately led to their death. Presently, on treatment patients are generally thriving and in clinic we deal with numerous nuisance side effects that are generally manageable and tolerable---A MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT OVER THE BAD OLD DAYS!!
