Prezista allergic reaction
« on: December 27, 2008, 03:55:35 AM »
I have been taking Prezista for over 4 years now (I was in the tmc114 phase 2 trial) and it saved my life because my HIV is cross resistant to all the other protease inhibitors.  I am allergic to Bactrim (sulfonamide antibiotic) and even though Prezista contains sulfonamide I went ahead and took it hoping for the best.  The rash I got from the Prezista was mild until last July when I began getting hives with swollen lips.  The hives have flared up with increasing frequency until lately it's almost every day.  I can't take it anymore so I decided to stop the Prezista and see if the hives clear up.  If the Prezista turns out to be the culprit I'll have to switch to the new integrase or entry inhibitor.

Has anyone else who is allegic to Bactrim and is now taking Prezista developed hives and swollen lips?

cocktail: Prezista with Norvir boost/Truvada
PN: gabapentin/nortriptyline/ibuprofen
psych: Paxil
fatigue: testosterone shot every 2 weeks

Good morning! 
    My dr wants me to start Prezista and I am allergic to bactrim. I posted a few days ago. Check out the responses. Also, go the The Body.com and look at the experts column. Years ago, my reaction to bactrim took about a month to develope but I would definately check with your doctor. I am thinking about going for a second opinion about my medication change. Quality of life (QOL) is an issue and sometimes the doctors only see the good lab results and do not consider QOL. Gook luck and I will be watching responses to your posting.   Take care,  ChefDD  ;D
