Viracept vs. Sustiva resistance

Sep 18, 2000

My doctor has just changed my medications from a combination with a protease inhibitor (viracept) to a combination with Sustiva. I was doing wonderfully with the viracept but had diarrhea. I was not sure if I should switch just because of that. Now that I have switched I am wondering if I do not do well with the Sustiva can I go back to the viracept without facing resistance?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Depends on where your viral load was. If your viral load was undetectable (<50), and you were switched to to sustiva and remain < 50, there should not be a problem in going back to viracept.


is aids subclinical,visible or emerging?
