Took Ziagen in combination with Combivir for 6 1/2 years. Although it kept my viral load undetectable and t-cell count under control, the stomach problems and nausea were awful. Right along this combo, I took Prevacid to ease these side effects, hower the nausea didn't go away until I stopped taking this combination. I am now on Truvada and Reyataz: feel like I'm born again! The side effects will stop once you stop taking the med. Empower yourself and tell your doctor you insist on a change of combination, especially if you are undetectable as you can always go back to the medication because you will not have developed resistance to it.Read More Read Less
