Jul 25, 2007

Thank you very much for this excellent service.

I am currently taking Truvada once per day, along with 250 mg (1 pill) of Viracept twice per day. Is this a normal and effective combination?

I have read that the usual dosage for Viracept is 1,250 mg, twice per day. I'm a bit worried that my presription is wrong.

Thanks again.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Your dose of nelfinavir (Viracept) is way too low. You're correct in that the dose should be 1250 mg twice daily. I'd get this corrected as soon as possible.
