side effect of haart
Aug 25, 2010


I have been experienced serious giddiness/dizziness due to this 2 medication i am taking. TENVIR-EM 1 tablet and HIRAPHINE 200mg 1 tablet, I cant walk, eat, work and I don't know what to do to reduce it. is there anything I can do to reduce the effects?

Response from Dr. Henry

Tenvir-EM rarely causes persistent giddiness/dizziness. I am not sure which med Hiraphine is(? nevirapine). If nevirapine then brain side effects are not very common with that drug but there is concern about liver, skin, allergic reactions. Your symptoms sound impressive and warrant an evaluation by your HIV provider. KH

On arv's, the cd4 counts dropped.
