article of what drugs to avoid that cause wasting and lean muscle loss
Dec 5, 2005

recently.. a few weeks ago I received an e-mail about the side effect of specific drugs that I should avoid that contributed to muscle loss. I thought I printed the article but I can find it. I was from this site. Can you point me in the right direction to get a hold of the article again?

Response from Dr. Henry

I am not sure which article you are referring to. The thymidine analogue nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (D4T more so than AZT) have been particularly linked to fat loss in the setting of combination anti-HIV therapy. KH
