Atazanavir & Jaundice
Dec 22, 2004

I started atazanavir 4 days ago and have jaundiced eyes. Will this eventually go away or is there something I can do/take to reduce this? I don't have any other significant side effects? Thanks, Darren P.

Response from Dr. Henry

The jaundice may get better but you cannot count on it. Keeping well hydrated may help some. If you developed jaundice that fast you may have a genetic predisposition-I would get your direct and indirect bilirubin levels checked very soon to see what the situation is like and discuss with your HIV specialist.

Is it lipodistrophy?
