Viramune side effects??
Nov 9, 2008


I recently switched to viramune from stocrin and have a few side effects. However my doctor has said they are not related. I constantly feel full and my eyes are red first thing in the morning. Your thoughts?

Response from Dr. Henry

Viramune generally causes few GI side effects. Fullness is not a common symptom related to viramune though it occasionally is seen. Red eyes can be due to a variety of conditions not related to HIV and HIV drugs. If you are having a rash and/or oral/mouth problems as well I would be concerned that the viramune could be the cause and strongly recommend immediately discussing with your HIV provider.KH

Kaletra + Truvada = rash
