Answer

When used with appropriate clinical and laboratory control monitoring, combination therapy with the above agents is usually well tolerated. Adverse events typically become rarer after the first 2-3 months of therapy. Most adverse events are reversible with cessation of the drugs or with reduction of the doses.
