|Kivexa or Truvada
Aug 14, 2007
My HLA test was negative, so abacavir remains an option. Genotype test shows no drug-resistant mutations, and I have no co-infections, kidney or liver problems. I'm 55 and been infected about 4 years.
There doesn't seem to be much to choose between Kivexa and Truvada. Apart from specific side effects, both list nausea and diarrhoea. Have you any views on how common side effects are with these two drugs? If all else is equal, I might as well choose the one with the lower incidence of side effects.
