Weight gain, gas and sleeplessness
Jun 2, 2010

Have been on truvada,ritonavir and atazanavir since October last year. Didnt notice any side effects at first but now have have several including weight gain, passing gas and sleeping problems. What can I do to manage these?

Response from Dr. Henry

A nutrition and exercise assessment would be starting place for gas and weight gain issues. If that is not helpful (need to be persistence and patient) then an alternative HIV regimen (such as raltegravir or efavirenz instead of the ritonavir/atazanavir) might be worth considering on a trial basis. A through sleep assessment is recommended by a sleep specialist. Sleep problems not commonly associated with your current HIV regimen. KH
