Stop PI once undetected - any new research?
Apr 9, 2006
My VL was never >13000, yet my doctor favored starting treatment once CD4 was 200+-. I take truvada, reyataz(300mg) and norvir once daily. Can I cut off any of these 3 meds since I went undetectable (i.e. no more PI). I have no side effects but want to reduce whatever possible. Please help:)

Thanks for your post.
I wouldn't recommend eliminating any of your current medications-- doing so would really risk a simple and likely potent regimen.
I like to reinforce the notion that while taking HIV medications isn't always simple or emotionally desireable, risking serious, life-threatening complications from AIDS is a whole lot worse.
Hope this helps, BY
