Diahrrea...for a year,or for life?
Sep 24, 2006

I was on zerit,kaletra,viread...and i had diahrea for a year,then the Doc changed zerit to retrovir cos of lipoatrophy...i am still with diahrea,getting thinner,my ass looks like a raisin,when will this lipo....stop?i prefer to die...i look like a old fat under my skin,my legs this life ?

Response from Dr. Henry

Both Kaletra and Viread can cause loose stools. Retrovir may not help the fat problems from Zerit much . I would discuss with your HIV specialist whether other drugs are an options for you and whether your loose stools can be evaluated or better treated. Diet and exercise and hormone evauations may help some. KH
