going back on meds
Jul 30, 2006
Hi. First off thanks for all the great advice you guys give. Many of us are thankful for it.
I enrolled in a clinical trial upon seroconversion and completed 6 cycles of Interleukin-2. I came off meds 30 days after completing my last cycle.
I'm doing an additional "booster" cycle this fall and need to go back on daily meds. Last time I took Combivir and Viramune. Is it better to use the same one's again or does it matter? I really struggled w/ my energy while on them and attribute it to the AZT. What would you recommend? I will be on them for approximately 3 moths total.
Response from Dr. Wohl
Interesting that Viramune is what your docs recommended as most are squeamish about giving this med to those with higher CD4 cell counts due to increased risk of liver toxicity at high CD4s.
