Body Burning
Jun 21, 2013

i was diagnosed HIV+ in 2013. CD4 was 147, virus load not know .The doctor put me on Avolam 150 mg, Zidovudine 300mg, Tevir 300 mg, one month body is burning then i have not well feel. please take a medicine suggest.

Response from Dr. Henry

I am unfamiliar with Tevir (? tenofovir). If Tevir is tenofovir then I would some concern about your regimen (if nevirapine or efavirenz then regimen may be more effective but side effects from that drug can complicate the situation. The AZT in your regimen often can cause various annoying side effects that would need to be sorted out with a full clinical evaluation to distinguish from a HIV related complication, a non-HIV problem, Immune reconstitution issues or other conditions. You need to be seen by your HIV doctor to discuss your symptoms and if one of the HIV drug may be contributing to your symptoms what other options are available to you. KH
