darkend nail beds
Oct 15, 2005

Iv enoticed that my nail beds are darkened when I started taking trizivir , is it anything i can do to reverse this

Response from Dr. Henry

That can happen particularly from the AZT more common in African American patients in my experience. Often can switch off the AZT (use a NNRTI or PI) with slow (but not 100%) improvement. KH

Sustiva, Truvada & Viramune
My docs are stumped ! Intermittent, severe upper-body paresthesia
