I take Trizivir and have been on it for several years. I have not noticed anything about it. For all the effects of Trizivir in my case, it might as well be an aspirin. I take it with Sustiva. Do you take it with anything ?? Sustiva gives me severe stomach pain if i do not take it on an empty stomache like the instructions say OR especially if i have any kind of protein in my tummy like peanutbutter or scrambled eggs. Sorry, don't have any experience with Lymphoma. So what do you take your Trizivir with ??

Have you been experiencing other side effects as well with Trizivir?

Stomach pain unfortunately can happen in about 1 out of 10 people (9%) It's generally not medically serious, but can hurt like hell. You can try taking it with a full stomach to offset some of the stomach problems.

Stomach pain coupled with a few other side effects can mean other problems. VERY rarely is it an issue, but that's why I was curious about any other side effects.


Words are, of course, the most potent drug used by mankind.

Alan - taking Trizivir on an empty stomach gave me very bad stomach pains and severe nausea. I started taking it with a bagel in the morning and with some starch in the evening and all has been well since.

Hey Alan, I just read your post, and though I have no experience with trizivir, I have lived through 2 different bouts of lymphoma. I'm currently in remission and doing great. If you'd ever like to share experiences, or if I can help you at all, please drop me a PM and we can exchange emails, if you'd like.
