Cough with Selzentry
Dec 13, 2013

Dear Dr. Thank you for your great service. My friend is a smoker. Since he has started a new regimen with selzentry, his cough is worse. He is not sick, no fever, or cold symptoms. I am just noticing he is coughing more. Since he is not ready to quit smoking at this point, my question is, will this coughing hurt him in any way as long as we watch him closely to see that it doesn't turn into something worse. Thank you!

Response from Dr. Henry

Cough has been reported in patients taking maraviroc though often difficult to sort out since many often factors/conditions can cause an increase in cough (even more so in smokers). If the increased cough is due to the maraviroc generally is mild and treatment can be continued in most cases. If cough accompanied by fevers, chills, wheezing, difficulty breathing, increased sputum production and/or other serious symptoms clinical evaluation is recommended. KH
