ziagen side effects, stopping it?
Aug 22, 2005

Stopping it and starting a new set of drugs. Had hive style rashes on chest and back.

Response from Dr. Henry

You should see your HIV doc. A rash alone can sometimes be treated through and could be due to something else depending on what other medications you are taking and other individual clinical issues. If you have other symptoms other than rash then an abacavir hypersensitivity reaction is a major concern so stopping the regimen needs to be strongly considered. KH
