Take control of your medication and health by asking more questions of your doctor about your HIV and any side effects about your HIV medication. 

While many people do not experience side effects - some people can. These early side effects are usually just at the beginning of treatment. Always discuss your concerns with your doctor. Treatment related side effects can usually be well managed. It is best if you and your doctor work together as a team to reach the best outcomes for you.

Talk with your doctor about your health, your experiences with HIV, and how you are feeling generally keeps you in control of your HIV and your health. Remember to tell your doctor about any other medications that you are taking.

If you have more treatment related questions call our Treatments Officer (02) 9206 2177 to ask questions you feel unsure about.
