side effects of medications
Aug 5, 2011

I have been sick more in the past 6 months than the past ten years of being HIV positive. I have had to miss work more lately, tired, diarrea, vomitting and headaches. I litterally struggle just to get through a ten hour day lately. I have passed out and feel so weak. Is this normal, Do I need to just be tougher?

Response from Dr. Henry

That does not sound normal so a full medical evaluation/assessment is recommended. A review of all your HIV meds, treatment history, and HIV history is important to interpret what role your current drugs could be playing. KH
