Change from Norvir

Jan 7, 2004

I'm on Norvir, Sustiva and Fortovase. With Abbotts price gouging I'd like to stop the Norvir. What can I replace it with that's not made by Abbott Labs?

Response from Dr. Lee

You did not supply dosing information, but my assumption would be that the Norvir in the combo you describe is being utilized to "boost" the Fortavase or increase the concentration of Fortavase in your system. There are other medications that may have similar effects, but none have been as well studied. Please do not stop the Norvir without carefully reviewing your options with your doc.
