yellow eyes
Sep 16, 2007

I've been on rayataz for one week now and my eyes are starting to turn yellow.What should I do?

Response from Dr. Henry

I would contact your HIV specialist to have a bilirubin level checked. I would make sure you are well hydrated (drink lots of fluids/water) in the meatnime. Generally the jaundice seen with atazanavir is not directly health threatening. In some cases if persistent and bothersome then either an atazanavir dose adjustment or switch to an alternative medication is in order. KH
