Lymph Node
Jan 16, 2009

I am taking an HIV PEP regimen after a possible exposure to HIV. I am on Combivir and Nevirapine. After starting the medication I was sick to my stomach, but only at first. Now I am feeling better though I have been tired a lot. Today I noticed a swollen lymph node on my neck. Could these things have anything to do with the medicine I am taking? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Henry

An isolated swollen lymph node in the neck would very rarely be due to any reaction to Combivir + Nevirapine and is a fairly common finding in the general population. KH

How do you control burping and Farting
