facial wasting
Mar 6, 2006

hello... i have started my first regime... reyataz boosted by norvir and viramune once a day.. i would like to know in your opinion the chanche to develope facial wasting.. and how long does it take to develope

Response from Dr. Wohl

Whoa! Really? Reyataz+Norvir+Viramune? This is a very unusual combo and unless you are allergic to every known nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (class of HIV drugs which includes AZT, lamivudine, tenofovir and abacavir, among others) I can not understand why anyone who prescribe this regimen.

Additionally, there could be some important drug-drug interactions going on here.

More important than any risk of facial wasting (should not be any) is why you were prescribed this unorthodox regimen.
