Question

my husband has had aids for 4years. now he is having server cramps in his legs at night. and his stomach is enlarged . he takes his medicine. he is59years old. what should i do to help.were do i reading matrial on side effects. and different symonts.

Answer

There is plenty of information about possible medication side effects elsewhere on this site. Leg cramps are not specifically associated with HIV medicines, but an enlarged belly has been described in some people taking HIV therapy (referred to as lipodystrophy). I recommend that your husband discuss these problems with his doctor.
