Reyataz sulfer based?
« on: February 10, 2007, 03:59:06 PM »
Hi, anyone konw if Reyataz is sulfer based? Because I have been having slight 97-100 degree fever past four days, and doesn't seem to be going away. The fever, body chill and shiver all seem a lot like how my body reacted to Bactrim last month before changing to Mepron.

Atazanavir is not sulfa based

Egs, you's just started treatment with a low CD4, you's gonna feel rough, your immune system has gone to war with the nasties, maybe including perhaps other bugs it hasn't had time or energy to deal with, and feeling like you have flu is, er, a common thing (cos it's the immne activation that gives you that feeling).  If yor fever gets worse, then call clinic or go see the doc. Meantime, ibuprofen etc, just like for a cold will probably help.

The incidence of Reyataz allergy is very low, and characterised by "swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat which may cause difficulty in swallowing or breathing, or severe and sudden onset of pinkish, itchy swellings on the skin" (from the prescribing info).

No it is not sulfer based... I'm highly allergic to sulfa and Reyataz is part of my combination therapy.
