HIV tinnitus supoort group
Jul 14, 2010

You had previously responded to my earlier question on tinnitus as a possible side effect of 3TC and you mentioned that some patients who are taking 3TC are also having tinnitus. Do know if there is an HIV support group that deals with this same problem so that they can share experiences in dealing with tinnitus? Do you know of any studies done regarding HIV antiretroviral meds and tinnitus for HIVers especially for those who are on them for more than ten years?

tinnitus as a possible side effect. Do you know of any support grpup with HIV that may dealing with the tinnitus

Response from Dr. Henry

I do not know of any support group. Literature is spotty often in documentation of rates of side effects after long term use which is a frustrating situation. KH
