In relation to the last question concerning reyataz/norvir/truvada I had an additional question.
Is it at all posibble to take unboosted reyataz with truvada so as not to deal with norvir issues? For example, take a higher dose of reyataz? I am a little worried about taking the norvir as I had very bad GI issues when I took Kaletra which I am assuming was boosted with norvir. I cannot take an NNRTI. so reyataz looks like the next thing.

Thanks for your post.
If one wants to use unboosted atazanavir (without ritonavir), you'd have to use a different nuke combo- such as AZT/3TC (Combivir) or abacavir/3TC (Epzicom). These combinations don't interact with atazanavir, allowing for such combinations.
