Tackling Today's HIV Medication Side Effects

November 9, 2015


Today's HIV Treatment

Today's HIV Treatment

Today's HIV treatment has fewer side effects and is more effective than ever before. The greatest progress in HIV medicine in the last few years has been in developing drugs that avoid the problems associated with older treatments.

It's still common to have an upset stomach and other problems as your body adapts to a new drug, but in most cases these will go away.

You should aim for a combination that keeps your viral load down to undetectable with hardly any side effects. You deserve the best quality of life -- and with the wide range of anti-HIV medications available, there should be a combination out there that fits the bill.
