PEP after effects.
Aug 17, 2013

Hi, I took combivir and kaletra for a month during april 2012. Some days later I developed a chronic headache, with muscle hypertonia, which persist until today. Do you have any advice about how to treat it ?

Response from Dr. Henry

It is very unusual to have persistent side effects weeks after stopping a PEP regimen. A clinical exam looking at blood pressure, kidney function, muscle/joint/nerve status would be advised if having persistent annoying symptoms as you describe. KH

Truvada and Bactrim
chest pains
