getting hair on my body
Dec 9, 2005

taking kaletra&combivir right now is 3 month ... i have noticed that i become hairy on my legs & other parts of my body .

what do think? is it a side effects?

Response from Dr. Henry

Interesting since it seems more patients note loss of hair as more of a problem. Increase in body hair is unusual with that regimen.Somehow perhaps with either better clinical/nutrition status and/or an alteration in your hormone levels (due either to improved health or alteration in hormone metabolism in your case due to the protease inhibitor) your hormone levels may be altered.

acute treatment- efficacy?
