Jul 19, 2009

I emailed before that the virus strain I have is resistant or slightly resistant to many of the medications(basically I saw a lot of red and yellow next too different meds). I just found out I am not susceptible to Marivoric medication. I am on Intelence,Truvada,Prezista,Norvir and Dapsone. I have my first follow up in couple ofweeks. I look and feel far. I just hope this current cocktail is working. I am not sure what else is available if these do not work? I hope this isn't too vague...I am still a couple of months into my positive diagnosis and still learning more about this.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I think you need to see what the viral load result is on this regimen. If you have had a good response or are undetectable, than no worries. If you are not getting a good response, another resistance test would be in order to see if you can fine tune the regimen any further. Fuzeon (an injectable HIV med) may be required.
