neck pain
Sep 13, 2006

using invirase, combivir, kaletra, fuzeon for over a year. my neck gets real tight and stiff two hrs after taking meds. also seems to affect my vision somewhat. not dizzy but just feel unstable when i walk. could this be the combivir.

Response from Dr. Henry

Combivir (particularly the AZT component) can cause some odd pains in occasional patients but generally, localized pain like you describe would likely be due to some other factor besides your HIV regimen. KH
