PEP side effect
Jun 8, 2007

i was put on Combivir as PEP care about three weeks ago(glad it's almost over). i was feeling real sick the first week into the treatment, then i started feeling slightly better(figured that it's my body that started to adjust). but about 3 days ago, i woke up feeling real sick again, and it hasn't been any improvement so far. i'm feeling pretty feverish as i'm writing this. is this normal Doc? thank you

Response from Dr. Henry

Combivir can cause a wide range of gut/body side effects off and on over the first weeks of therapy so your symptoms could be relatead to the Combivir. Many other conditions can cause fevers/symptoms including other infections (such as a cold) or worry/stress. KH
