Response from Dr. Henry
Swelling as you describe warrants a clinical evaluation. Concern about heart, renal, nutrition, liver, allergic, blood clot problems would be on the list of concern. Lamistar30 (lamivudine and stavudine) could contribute to some complications resulting in swelling but usually there is another explanation. Efavirenz would be less likely a contributing factor. KH
