does ARVs cause urine to have a smell after using for a while about 2 3yrs?
| Response from Dr. Henry
It would be unusual for a a new urine smell to be due to antiretroviral alone after years of use of the same medications. Hydration status, food intake, diabetes, other medications--many factors can influence urine smell/concentration. Your current regimen may contribute to renal dysfunction (ie tenofovir) in some cases so a review of the situation by your HIV physician is recommended. KH
