Follow-Up on Nasea
Jul 16, 2008

Dr. Henry, Thank you for your answer concerning the nasea. My doctor did give me Zofran for the day time. I still have the promethazine gel for the evenings. I still suffer from the nasea, but it is controlable at this point.When I did see her my viral load went from around 100K to 149. She did offer a change in my regime. I see her in August and she feels I will be undetectible. She has never told me that the nasea will or will not leave. Is this just a side effect I will have to manage?

Response from Dr. Henry

Hopefully the nausea will diminish over time (course is highly variable) or else perhaps an alterative HIV regimen could be considered (if available) after a while. KH

is generic Altripla safe?
Atripla Hair Loss and IRIS
