I noticed that I have more heartburn than anything else. Never had any actual pain though, but different people have different effects I guess. How's your diet?

I know this might be a bit personal, but are you experiencing any increase in the incidence of diarrhea?  I found that I had that quite a bit the first few months I was on this medication, and that often caused abdominal discomfort.  If that is the case, you could try and see if over-the-counter anti-diarrhea medication could help.  In my case, it has pretty well gone away on its own.

Don't forget to bring this up with your doctor at your next appointment - or sooner if it get worse.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
