What should I switch to?

Jun 22, 2008

Hello, I have been poz since 1999 and started Trizivir in 2005, I just found out it causes facial wasting, I am already on the slim side LOL. What can i switch to that will not mess with my undetectable status, and keep me from facial wasting.

Response from Dr. Pierone

The simplest approach would be a switch to Atripla. This would entail a change from a dated combination to a newer 3 in 1 agent that is dosed once a day and carries a lower risk of lipoatrophy.

Good luck!

facial wasting or weight gain?
