Neck pain after PEP
Hi,

I finished a course of PEP (Trizivir) 5 days ago. Until 2 days ago I still experienced nausea, which is better now. The feeling of hunger is slowly coming back. But, I have a very stiff neck (neck pain) sinds a couple of weeks. I though it was related to the PEP, but it is still present. Is it possible that it is still caused by the PEP in my system and will go away?
Does anyone have some experience with this?

thanks!

Pep can have side effects, why did. You need pep in the first places?

No, Europe, Massage Girl, probably CSW.
But the PEP is finished now, I am worried that the neck stiffness will remain :s

Could be anxiety based. Surprised a doctor gave you pep.

He prescribed it to me because I really wanted it, I was very scared. I paid for it myself... Do you think I could have done any permanent damage?

permanent damage: not only my neck, but maybe something else?

What did you expect? That medication isn't like taking an aspirin. I'm sure you were given a paper that describes all the side effects of the medication.

Hi Craigtee,

yes, I had this too, what medication are you on?
The first 2 weeks I had these effects, the next week it was all better, then it came back... Now I'm 5 days without and still nog feeling that good...

What was the reason you're on PEP?

Hang in there!
