mild nausea in the morning from stribild
Oct 1, 2013

I have been on stribild and have noticed that I have MILD nausea in the day, I do take my pills usually with a peanut butter sandwich or egg and canadian bacon sandwich both on 100 calorie whole wheat. Usually if I eat something when I get to work it clears before lunch. With my pill I also take vitamin B, multivitain, vitamin c and vitamin d, Celexa 20 Crestor at the same time. Should I not take all these pills with the Strbild But I also take klonopin .5 mg( which i have started to titrate off)in the eve and have 2 glasses or red wine at night. Could this be the culprit and not the stribild. I must admit too that marijuana i smoke at night. Eat well, work out daily, wt is ok....I am pleased at the results. Any suggestions to relieve the Mild nausea.

Response from Dr. Henry

Nausea is seen with Stribild but is not has been a common persistent problem.It can be a challenge to sort out all possible drug interactions (ie the stribild can increase the levels of klonopin). For a week I would hold your vitamins, the Crestor and perhaps make sure the klonopin is either hold or taken 12 hours or so after the Stribild (if the above OK with your HIV provider) and then observe status of nausea. If better then try to reintroduce the other meds one at a time over several weeks. KH
