Combivir stopping

Hello people have told me no risks with my random oral with a stranger who appeared ill well three m ds has been on me to continue combivir my life has stopped horrible abonimal issues so fatigue to do anything and can't get enough water constant dry mouth sore throat and muscle pains headaches so my question is I am 14 days in and if I quit now will these side effects go away and how long till they do I just want to die I feel so bad. If I quit today what will happen in terms of if I did have an exposure. Sorry if I'm a bother this forum is all I have my drs seem to judge me and have me so scared to stop thanks

I wouldn't have taken them to begin with and I would imagine that the Dr. that prescribed them is not HIV educated.

I understand I should of just listened to you. What will happen if I quit them actually all three Drs have told me to deal with it one though when complained about side effects they acted like I was overreacting. Thanks again Teak

Hello so yesterday I finished 28 days of pep however missed two or three doses also dr gave me pills for thirty days is it ok to stop now or should I do 2 more days plus the missed pills. I'm just trying to get info I noticed this post from before where someone else was on pep for oral http://www.medhelp.org/posts/HIV-Prevention/Unprotected-Oral-incident/show/40166


I want to move along however I just want the facts and your knowledge do you with those studies of the people were on meds and or did they have high viral loads I ask cause the person I was with had large glands in groin on one side I've heard that could be not good thank you

You never had an exposure and didn't need nPEP in the first place.
