Sep 6, 2004

Dear doctor, in terms of less long term drug toxicity and less likely to develop liopdystrphy what is your corrunt favorit conmbination theraphy for who is on the first line treatment no any drug resistance with CD350 and vL 60000: which one is your favourit one to start with :

1.Sustiva plus either Truvada (Viread + Emtriva) or Epzicom (Ziagen + Epivir).

or combivir + sustiva

or viread, + epivire + sustiva

plsease i need your oppinion on this thank you

Response from Dr. Pierone

In terms of tolerability and long term risk of lipodystrophy the combination of Viread with either Epivir or Emtriva has the most favorable profile. Truvada (Viread and Emtriva) is available and permits a lower pill burden (2 pills once daily when used with Sustiva) and is my favorite for first-line nucleoside use.
