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.
