medication failure

Jan 17, 2007


have you ever seen a patient newly diagnosed that is unable to take any regimin of medication because of the side effects and consequently will die soon because they are unable to take meds?

Response from Dr. Young

To be brief, in the past 5 years (with improved medications), no.

Further, in our clinic it is realy, realy exceptionally rare to see first line regimens fail because of viral resistance ( we do routine baseline drug resistance testing).

Hope this answers your questions. BY
