New Nausa
Jan 5, 2006

I've been on the following regiman for about a year: Zerit 40mg Lexiva 700 mg Epivir 150 mg

And it works! VL undetectable and T-cells are stable.

But in the past month, I've developed nausa that I have never had before, about an hour after dosing and it lasts for a good 4 hrs, then fades away.

Is this common? Or sign of something else? Suggeestions?

Response from Dr. Henry

You need to discuss with your HIV specialist. Liver problems, lactic acidosis, pancreatitis, internal fat increases, gastric or esophageal problems and other conditions can cause new onset nausea. Some of those problems can sometimes be related to your HIV drugs. KH
