fuzeon weight loss
I've worked hard to get my weight up. Doc wants me on fuxeon. How will this effect my weight? ## Hello, Pitt! How are you? It can cause anorexia, as a side effect, along with erythema, insomnia and depression. Have you talked to your doctor about it? Maybe a high calorie supplement could help, while you're taking it.
