joint pain and PEP
Jan 2, 2007

I have been taking Truvada/Kaletra for PEP for 3 weeks and have begun to notice some minor joint/muscle pain/tenderness. Is this ARS or a side effect of the medicine? This followed a small fever/congestion/sore throat/cough while on PEP.

Response from Dr. Henry

The symptoms you describe would generally not be due to either your HIV medications or ARS. KH
