Sustiva v Reyataz

Oct 23, 2005

Hi Ben.

A quick question for you.

Which of the medicines Sustiva or Reyataz has the ability to disturb the metabolism more, ie what affects does either drug have on lipids?



Response from Dr. Young

Dave- Thank you for your post.

Both efavirenz (Sustiva, Stocrin) and atazanavir (Reyataz) are drugs that have minimal impact on lipids. Be aware that the nucleosides, or ritonavir often used in combination with these two drugs can also influence one's lipids. BY

Is there a chance?
