AZT side effect
Jan 18, 2010

Doc, I am a police officer who was bitten approx two years ago I was put on AZT for two weeks. Approx two months later I started to get sentive nipples both. Over the past two years I have had lumps on my breasts. I had a check up with my doctor. He did blood work and seems my testorome levels are low. I am weak and tired and lost a lot of weight I also feel off my rocker upstairs. Do you think this is a side effect. I have not taken any other drugs or medication since the or before the AZT. I have had an MRI and mamo. But the doc is slow getting back. What do you think and what should I ask my endocroligist Thanks POfficer Mike

Response from Dr. Henry

I strongly doubt that two weeks of AZT taken two years ago would be linked to the low testosterone (common in general population) or your other problems. KH
