Nausea is definately no fun, especially the dreaded dry heaves..Sorry your husband is having issues..I'm not on that particular med and do not suffer nausea on my meds, but when I do feel queasy at any time, Ginger works wonders..Should be completely safe since its not even a medication! Give it a shot and hope all goes well

Candy, in the Lessons pages of this website, in the Side Effect area there is a section that deals specifically with nausea. Please check it out for tips.

I'm wondering if he's feeling like this immediately after getting out of bed in the morning. If that's when it happens, some of the tricks for morning sickness (in pregnancy) might help - specifically eating a few saltines or something else equally as bland before getting out of bed. Sometimes just having a little something in your stomach before getting up and moving around can help.

If all else fails, he should speak to his hiv doctor about this problem. The doctor will know exactly what anti-nausea meds to prescribe for him.

Good luck!

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

Is he taking it with food or on an empty stomach ?
I never have breakfast and could not tolerate Isentress in the morning eitheR.

My solution was to take both Isentress in the evening, after dinner.
I know it's supposed to be twice a day, and the studies on Isentress once daily were stopped, but it has worked for me. No nausea whatsoever.
