Truvada Mrsa anal warts
Oct 19, 2005

I have had 4 staph infections this year and have had a recurrence of anal warts in the last year. The staph was diagnosed as mrsa 2x and I had an obsess with one infection. I am getting ready to turn 40 and am on zerit and norvir as well. These issues have only started since I started taking truvada. Have others taking this drug experienced a larger recurrence of such infections? tcells 400, viral load 1200 Hiv+ 9years

Response from Dr. Henry

I am not aware of any evidence that your HIV meds contribute directly to an increased risk of either MRSA or warts though sometimes immune reconstitution (during early months on treatment)can aggravate symptoms from those infections. KH
