Eviplera and Maraviroc Side Effects
      #272768 - 06/27/13 06:46 AM

Is Eviplera and Complera the same thing? Anyway I'm taking it and Maraviroc (Selzentry in the US and Celsentri elsewhere). I have been on Eviplera for 12 months and the Maraviroc was added in January. I have no idea why something wasn't working or resistance or something. My question, anyone else on these 2 and you you have many side effects? I have constant headaches and severe joint pains, had stomach aches for months but they have settled. My viral load is still detectable 5000 and my cd4s around 180. Is it time to change meds? Are these side effects normal?

You state your taking the meds from 2 different places. Do both doctors know what you are on? You really need to talk with your drs and have your drs talk to each other. It's always a bit difficult when you have multiple docs treating you for the same thing. They need to work together.

That's my problem, the docs share notes but neither will take the lead and I'm stuck in the middle. I need to move to get access to better health services but that's not something that can happen in a hurry.
