i take truvada and kaletra.are there sideeffects of hairloss of these medications?or can the hiv virus itself lead to loss of hair?i was diagnosed 1 year ago,and started treatment.i have had a signifikant hairloss after i started treatment.

Response from Dr. Henry

Hair loss after starting HIV treatment is often reported by patients and difficult to sort out or attribute to a single drug. Often hair loss in that setting stabilizes after a while. The FTC in Truvada has occasionally seem to be linked to hair loss in some of my patients. KH

fuzeon + amikacin = Pain!!!
hiv in angola
