Answer

Hello and thanks for your post.

Having red eyes is not generally a side effect of HIV medications, nor a common complication of the virus. Nevertheless, there could be an underlying medical issue, or at the least something that could be addressed by your healthcare provider.

I'd suggest discussing your symptoms with your doctor-- perhaps there's a simple remedy.

Be well, BY
