side effects of combiver
Sep 7, 2005
hi doctor, my doctor has given me combiver to take, following a brutal attack during an armed robbery, as a precautionay measure. The problem is that i feel awful, my entire body aches so badly i battle to move around, I am nauseous & have headaches. I am also feeling depressed. Please help, are these side effects normal? thanking you in advance.
Response from Dr. Henry
Those symptoms are fairly common during the first weeks of use of Combivir and often diminish over 2-4 weeks. Symptomatic treatment for nausea and pain (such as your headache) can often help patients tolerate the medications (in your case likely trying to take for 4 weeks). KH
