not able to take any meds drug resistant
May 16, 2004
Hi. I have learned so much from your site. I just wanted a little advice if you have time to answer my question. I learned of being positive in 1995. I came down with pcp. Now 2003, 2 kids later hiv negative wife and kids i have a 3 t-cell count and over a million viral load. I am resistant to every drug on the table. I repeatively get shingles and the pain is excrushiating. Now they say that T-20 was approved by the FDA. I just need a little boost of life again. I have a 6 year old and a 9 month old. What else can i do in the meantime????? Sincerely suffering every day

This popped into my mailbox recently. A thorough review of your HIV med history and prior resistance tests, should help inform and guide any future treatment decisions. Some meds might be able to be recycled, and if they have any residual activity, could be coupled with t-20 in an effective regimen. Good luck.
