|combivir and side effects, how long do they last?
Nov 23, 2008
I was recently exposed to HIV virus via a broken condom. I was prescribed combiver by an ER physcian within 72 hrs of exposure. I have many side effects from the medication like nausea, headaches, body rash, depression, dark circles under my eyes, extreme fatigue, lack of appetite, I just look very ill. Will these side effects last after I quit taking the medication? I am on a thirty day prescription.
Response from Dr. Henry
Fortunately side effects from Combivir generally resolve quickly when the medication is stopped (within several days usually). KH
