medication side effects and work
Apr 1, 2002

I work full time in Canada and am healthy according to my CD4s and viral load. However severe side effects from medications ie nausea, severe diarrhea and severe fatigue are interfering with work. IS this enough reason to seek disability .

Response from Dr. Boyle

Well, it may be a reson to seek disability or it may be a reason to ask your doctor about alternatives to your current regimen that may not have these side effects.
