gastrointestinal cure?
Jan 12, 2007

Hello everyone. I would like to thank you all for this great service and the chance to ask questions and share experiences. I am taking Kaletra+Trizivir+Viread and have been having SEVERE and painful gas that has been embarrassing and had become a quality of life issue. I tried all the OTC stuff along with the purple pill and pretty much anything but nothing touched it. I visited a naturopathic doctor who put me on something called acidophilus. I take 2 pills twice a day and my life has improved remarkably. It was so bad at night that I started sleeping in the guest bedroom. I feel like I have my life back and I wanted to share it with other HIVers. Best!

Response from Dr. Henry

Thanks for sharing your experience-I will put that on my list of things to consider for the problem of excess gas. KH
