Changes to this edition
The fifth edition of this guide includes the following changes:
   It has been updated to include side effects of the latest drugs.
   Information on side effects of drugs that are now rarely used has been reduced in the print edition. This information is now only in the online version. This includes more detailed information on T-20, lacticacidosis, indinavir, d4T and abacavir hypersensitivity reaction.
   We have expanded information on long-term complications. These may not be side effects but they are essential in getting your best quality of life. For example, the sections on bone health, heart disease, mental health and HIV and cancer.
   We have included a new section on HIV and ageing because this an essential part of living well with HIV.
   The guide includes comprehensive references online. There are hyperlinks to over 350 documents organised by subject. These include: the product information for each drug; UK, European and US treatment and management guidelines; and related studies that focus on safety and tolerability of drugs. Whenever possible we selected references that provide free full text access online.
