Sep 17, 2006

Butmy Doctor said that the concentration of reyataz in the blod is very low(HOW MUCH LOW I DON'T KNOW) but he cheked it more than.three time and he want me to make drug ajustment.Because he beleive that in the long run the can fail to control the virus.What is your opnion. Thank in advance. Dav.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It's hard to argue with your success. I would have to understand what the results were of the reyataz levels to offer any firm conclusion about this. You have had an excellent response, which is unlikely only from the viread and epivir, so the reyataz must be doing something.
