Common Side Effects of Maraviroc

Clinical studies have not evaluated maraviroc alone for the treatment of HIV, as it is only approved for use along with other HIV medications. In fact, the information that is available on potential side effects involves studies that used maraviroc plus other HIV medications. Therefore, it is difficult to know whether these side effects are due to maraviroc or the other HIV medications. In these studies, the most common side effects of maraviroc (plus other HIV medications) included:
 
  • Upper respiratory tract infections (such as the common cold) -- in up to 20 percent of people
  • Coughing -- up to 12.7 percent
  • Fever -- up to 12 percent
  • Abdominal pain (stomach pain) -- up to 8.2 percent
  • Dizziness -- up to 8.2 percent
  • Changes in appetite -- up to 7.3 percent
  • Insomnia -- up to 7 percent.
     
Other common side effects (occurring in 2 to 7 percent of people) included:
 

Final Thoughts on Side Effects of Maraviroc

You may experience some or none of the side effects of maraviroc listed in this article. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell whether any particular side effect (such as nausea) is actually caused by maraviroc or other factors. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of maraviroc, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
