This was probably asked before... Do any of you taking Combivir dream about things you have in mind just before you fall asleep?
According to RxList.com: “Common side effects of Combivir include:
loss of appetite,
cold symptoms (stuffy nose, sneezing, sinus pain, cough), or
changes in the shape or location of body fat (especially in your arms, legs, face, neck, breasts, and trunk).”
I use Biktarvy. I have had zero side effects. I had several side effects, including weird dreams and problems sleeping when I used another drug, Atripla. Neither has Cimbivir, though.
I don't remember that effect with combivir. It did have an effect on my sleep though. I was always tired. Also, I think I would get a little nausea from it once in a while.
Oh yes. There was some of that dizzy feeling too.
@A myHIVteam Member, I do often dream about things that cross my mind in between falling asleep and when Combivir starts kicking in... Prior to that I try to avoid watching / reading / doing anything might mess my head up (haha). Nausea isn't frequent but drunken kinda dizziness yes, even after about 5 to 6 years taking Combivir.
