Side Effects

Feb 28, 2006

What if any major side-effects have been noticed with Ritonavir (Norvir) and Atazanavir (Reyrtaz)?

Response from Dr. Henry

Side effects include some increased gas, bloating, generall mild diarrhea, mild nausea, and yellow jaundice. For most patients the side effects are worse in the first several weeks then improve. The rate of side effects compares favorably to other drug combinations except for the yellow jaundice (> 10%) which is more common with atazanavir-based regimens. KH
