HIV meds and Photophobia
Mar 21, 2010

Hello, I've started HAART (Isentress, Epivir, and Tenofovir) for almost 2 weeks and have noticed extreme eye sensitivity to light, especially when I'm outdoors or driving. Is this a possible side effect of any of these meds?

Response from Dr. Henry

I have not had any patients on that regimen report that problem to me nor am I aware of that being noted as a medication attributable side effect. If nay reader has a reference or has experienced the same light sensitivity on a raltegravir (Isentress) based regimen please post! KH

Anemia, Swollen Lymph Nodes and Muscle Cramps
