Does haart can cause memory flaws ?
Oct 23, 2013

i am quiete not sure, but i am having seriues memory issues. i take efavirenz, lamivudina zidovudina.

Response from Dr. Henry

Efavirenz can cause some brain/central nervous system side effects that can include some confusion, trouble sleeping, and possibly memory problems though that side effect is not common. Since HIV infection of the brain can cause memory problems (as can other drugs and medical conditions) an evaluation by your HIV provider is recommended. KH

Edurant and grapefruit
Should I take Immune boosters
