side effects
Oct 8, 2009

I am on Norvir Reyataz and Epzicom. for a while, there were no problems. Now, after several years, I've started having bed wetting problems and trouble with shaking. That, with the shakes,lipidystrophy and weight gain have really curtailed my social life, as well as my hobby of digital photography.

Are there any suggestions you might have as to questions to ask my IDS doctor?

Response from Dr. Henry

None of the problems you are experiencing(shaking, bedwetting, or even the lipodystrophy) are seen very often with your current HIV regimen so a full medical including neurologic evaluation is recommended (ie assess for conditions like Parkinson's, high stress, and many others). KH

Is safe to take Lexapro and HIV med ATRIPLA?
