hives from PEP
Nov 9, 2011

I have recently taken a course of combivir which has given me hives, problem is its been a month since finished treatment and still have hives problem, i must admit have been stressed out from all this and I do sometimes suffer from anxiety. how can i overcome this problem ?? tried predisone and anti histamines to no effect

Response from Dr. Henry

Persistent hives from 4 weeks of Combivir that persist for a month after stopping would be very unusual so I would generally look for another cause. KH

Missing a dose
hiv liquid meds
