Treating Nausea Side Effect
Jun 14, 2013

I have recently begun a new regime (Lamzid:Ritonavir:Atazanavir) and have mainly suffered with abdominal pain and nausea. The abdominal pain has resolved itself by taking my meds on an empty stomach but the nausea continues. My doctor has used Motilium (which worked well) but after a course I am still having the odd nausea issue. Is it safe for me to use Covamet (cyclizine hydrochloride)?

Response from Dr. Henry

Generally would be OK to use the antihistamine cyclizine with your HIV regimen-hope it helps. KH

missed taking meds after a time frame.
