These side effects are generally temporary, but if they persist or become serious inform your doctor. Drinking plenty of fluid can help you to cope up with these side effects, so stay hydrated. In addition to that, avoid alcohol consumption as it may increase the intensity of the side effects.

If you are HIV positive, you should not breastfeed or share personal belongings like razors or toothbrushes.
