any better treatment?
Nov 30, 2003

Hi Doctor!

I have learned that HAART can reduce HIV viral loads down to undetectable level. However, a HIV+ patient has to take so many pills per day! Instead of taking so many pills daily , can a hiv patient get the medicine by injecting it into the his/her body weekly or monthly? thank you!

Response from Dr. Young

Thank you for your question.

I'm not sure where you live, but assuming that you live in the US or Western Europe, you're behind the times. HIV medications can now be as few as 3 pills total a day (for some patients, even as low as 1 pill twice a day). I'd encourage you to surf this site for information about contemporary, simple and well tolerated treatment options.

There aren't any injectable medications that can be given on a weekly or monthly basis (at least yet). BY

results after 90 days
