Hi, Doc am on ART am taking truvada and neverapine, but am developing fat belly, nevers and muscles irritating. how can i reduce this problem am an confortable in this life

Response from Dr. Henry

On paper and in published studies your current regimen (Truvada + nevirapine) would rank as a generally fat friendly regimen (and muscle friendly) compared to many other regimens thus I dont have a high level of confidence that simply switching meds around would necessarily reverse/significantly improve those symptoms. A full medical/life style evaluation (including fat and nerve assessment) is recommended to determine contributing factors in orer to formulate an action plan. Strongly recommend discussing with your HV provider. KH

Doctor may take me off Atripla creatinine levels
