Response from Dr. Holodniy

If he is really taking his HIV meds as prescribed, then I agree that something is not working. It may be useful to get a HIV resistance test to see whether his virus has become resistant to one or more of the HIV meds he is taking. That will help determine which if any of the meds should be changed and to what.
