skinproblems/rash after 5 or more years on Norvir
Jun 17, 2011

It is not scientific, my experience after skinrash that Norvir or protease could be the main reason is often subscribed by other hiv patients using Norvir or more proteaseblockers i am skinny so i donkt have buffalohump, tits or look pregned. I think the long term effects of some hivmedication can only now been evaluated after 10years worldwide subscribtion on a big scale. Is it correct that long term side effects on 1-1000 or less only know can be evaluated v

Response from Dr. Henry

You make a number of good points. Good data about long term side effects that for drugs (including antiretrovirals) is often poorly collected/appreciated. That may be particularly true for non-serious but annoying side effects. If can be difficult to sort out whether a particular problem is due to a specific meds when patients are on numerous medications, are aging, and have other medical problems. Thanks for your feedback.
