Say No to AIDS

Before starting any kind of medication, side effects are something that you should know about. Your ART medication, like many other types of medicine, may also pose side effects. These side effects can be:  

  • Appetite loss
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Higher than normal cholesterol.

While these side effects may be unpleasant or worrisome, you should NOT stop taking your medication. Please remember that you have the support of your Dream Team if you experience any of these side effects. You can learn more here.
