ziagen regimen stopped
Aug 22, 2005

Am going to advice to stop ziagen because of extreme rash on back and chest, was very nervous to stop, is this unusual or dangerous?

Response from Dr. Henry

A rash alone is a worry but often can treat through under careful supervision. If other symptoms develop (fever, severe fatigue, abdominal pain, shortness of breath) then stopping the Ziagen is usually warranted-again after discussion with your HIV doctor. KH

ziagen side effects, stopping it?
