How I can do from the side effects.
Apr 13, 2005

I stopped the Stocrins for 5 days but I feel dizziness and walk like a ataxic gait.Can I take dimenhydrinate for treat this symptoms?

Response from Dr. Henry

Stopping Stocrine can be complicated since it lasts in the blood for a long time (with a fairly high risk for resistance to develop of for some side effects to persist for a while). Your HIV specialist needs to carefully monitor the situation. It is unlikely than diphenydramine would help your dizziness. Those symptoms merit careful evaluation by your doctor to see if some other condition is active (such as a middle or inner ear infection or another brain condition). KH
