PEP LONG TERM SIDE EFFECTS
Jan 23, 2011
I AM ON PEP FOR 3 DAYS NOW.COMBIVIR AND KALETRA. I FEEL WEAK THIRSTY AND LOSS OF APETITE. After stopping PEP after 28 days am I going to feel normal again as before or this will continue for ever. Also please let me if there are any long term side effects.
Response from Dr. Henry
Many persons who start Combivir + Kaletra will experience loss of appetite and a variety of stomach/GI complaints. Stomach/appetite side effects will often get better after several weeks and usually will clear completely within a week or so after stopping the drugs are stopped. No long term side effects are expected after the drugs are stopped. KH
