Side effect of PEP
Dec 29, 2004

I had a virginal sex with a girl who later confessed to being HIV positive. I am currently on PEP - Epivir/zerit/sustiva but experiencing sore throat/fatigue/muscle pain. Is that a sign of HIV infection or PEP

Response from Dr. Henry

Those are very non-specific symptoms that are more likely related to side effects of your HIV meds than HIV infection. KH

Burning in Throat...Sustiva?
NNRTI & Lipitor
