Fighting Fatigue
Jul 16, 2010

Dr. Henry, I have been on meds now for 2 years. I could not stay on Atripla, I never did quit puking. Dr. Brown changed me to Kaletra and Combivir. I stayed on that untill last August when she changed me to Epzicom.She said that would help with the fatigue. It did to a degree, but I still have had it. I recently started taking a Human Growth Hormone suplement and it has helped to some degree. I have also started loosing some weight finally. I have a trainer twice a week and walk 3 miles 4 of 5 times a week. All of my lab results are normal. What else can I do?


Response from Dr. Henry

Fatigue is very common in the general population and often a challenge to find an exact cause or effective treatment. A full medical evaluation for fatigue (assess hormone levels, vitamin D levels, Lyme disease status, depression evaluation, and many other possiblities) is often of some help. Poor sleep, diet, and exercise habits often contribute to problems with fatigue. KH
