Eye irritation/Triumeq

Question

Were there any reported issues with eye irritation during any studies with patients taking Tivicay/Epzicom? my eyes were bothering me some while on the regimen( I do suffer from dry eyes? but since I have been on Triumeq the dryness and eye irritation is worse. They are irriated, tired and burning all day. I know this may not be a known side effect but I still have it.

Answer

Good question-I havent seen much discussion of eye problems associated with dolutegravir/abacavir/lamivudine either in the literature or in patients we have on those drugs. Allergy to dolutegravir can involve the eyes though usually not as a worsening of dry eyes.If any reader has knowledge of any reports or personal experience please post. KH
