Hello Dr. Henry In the last few weeks I have been dealing with liquid/yellow (like orange juice out of a can before adding water) - oily, stickey and orderless discharge. Stomach is very gasish, bloated and uncomfortable. (discharge is almost like mucus you get when your sinuses are acting up) CD4 low/ vl 32 thousand been like that for years. To look at me you would think picture of health....What's your take.... Signed 20 years pos. reyataz, norvir, viread. ziaghen, spornax, and dapsone

Response from Dr. Henry

I would have concern about range of conditions including lactose or gluten intolerance, HIV-related infections, HIV-unrelated infections (ie c difficile), pancreatic insufficiency, malabsorption syndrome, or a side effect of one of your medications (including HIV meds). A thorough GI work-up is often advised to try and determine cause so that treatment plan can be formulated. KH

Risperidone and Atripla interaction
