Rayataz & yellow eyes
Sep 10, 2004

My doc is so happy to have a few ,ore patients on Rayataz!!! Hipy for him . Sustive will be replaced because of PN ( Which I can sort of handle) he also needs to add a PI to insure the dose is maintained as I am on Tonofivie ( speling??) / Simply put I rather stay on a treatment which I puls ) month on on month off) nad live with the PN as opposed to having another patient on Rayatax to se if I get Yellow as well/. Numbers which I really goive the least crap abou tare 250 amnd 1200 which for me at 48 anf positive for 7 years I prefer to have half a year feeling doon and going off sooner than helping docs figure which and what meds mighy and may be better ( not for quality but simply to get dem numbas down !!!) so Are most peeps getijng yellow due to Riatax if so KEEP it . and let me dir whith ! Thanks.

Response from Dr. Henry

Studies and my own fairly extensive experience have noted that perhaps only 5-8% of patients on Rayataz develop yellow jaundice to the point where the orinarily white sclera of there eyes turns yellow. That is reversible when the medication is stopped. KH
