Response from Dr. Henry

SOunds like a very difficult situation. The HIV specialist involved in the best person to try and treat the severe symptoms, see if there is a treatable infection involved, and see if other drugs can be used if one of the currently used meds is contributing to the symptoms. Trying to maintain nutrition/body weight is very important as well. KH
