Try taking some yogurt before taking the meds. Most likely it is part of the side affects. Is he taking his meds at night before he goes to sleep? That way he can sleep through most of theside effects.. And at next dr appt address it to the doctor. Also post this in the living with section where you can get multiple suggestions.

My thoughts are also yoghurt, and I would add bananas. I've met many people who had good results with that combination. If he's been positive for years and is just now on meds, his GI tract could be pretty sensitive, so yoghurt and foods with live cultures in them would be very good for him. Non-citrus fruits that are high in pectin, such a bananas, are also very healing for someone with a frayed GI tract. Definitely work closely with his doc too. Don't give up!
