Neuro Effects - Fat changes
Jun 19, 2007

Hello doctor,

Could you please tell me whether the Truvada and Reyataz combo is a good one for somebody with considerable fat redistribution problems. Also, do these drugs have any known neuro - mental side effects.

Thanks very much for this service.


Response from Dr. Henry

Truvad + ritonavir /atazanavir has generally compared favorably with other combinations for effect on body fat. Central nervous side effects with that regimen have generally been minimal. KH
