i too marked sargramostin...
i too think the answer should ne filgrastim
because the incidence of muscle pain is more with filgrastim
whereas dypsnea occurs with both medications
also with HAART main side effect is neutropenia so the drug for neutropenia is filgrastim


but in all the online answer sources the answer given is sargramositin


want more discussion on this
