Migraine Headaches


I have suffered from migraines in the past but haven't one in years until starting on a sustiva/truvada combo. Now I seem to get them frequently. This started after about two months on the meds. I get the auras, the reduced eyesight, the flashing lights in my peripheral vision and the severe pain.

I intend to ask my doctor about it at the next visit but, I was wondering if anyone else has experience the onset or a recurrence of severe headaches on this med combo.

Migraine headaches are a known side-effect of Sustiva.  Plus Sustiva has an interaction with some anti-migraine drugs (ergot derivatives).
