Q and A


I’m having side effects, should I quit my meds?

I’ve recently switched to a different ARV combination. I’m having side effects, should I stop taking them?


Thanks for getting in touch.

Without more info it’s difficult to say what you should do. It also all depends on what ARV it is that you’re taking and why your combination was changed.

If you’re having side effects, you need to discuss this with your doctor. Stopping your meds without consulting your doctor should be a last resort and isn’t something that we’d advice.

Most side effects if a person has them usually pass within a few weeks, so unless you have a rash, then you should be OK. Again, please consult your doctor.
