drop in numbers
Sep 14, 2007
Hello Dr. Young,
After over a year on Atripla, my recent numbers were a little disappointing...I went from 650 3 months ago down to 420 now, but my percentage went from 34 to 37. still undetectable. I know the percentage is the important number...but I need a little reassurance. Also, one other question...I am concerned about future retirement and the cost of meds, any thoughts on how long it will take for sustiva/truvada to go generic or an alternate generic med that would work as well? Thanks again for all your help. JB
Response from Dr. Young
As for your other question, it will be a long time before we (here in the US) see generic tenofovir, FTC or efavirenz. In general, in the US and Europe, we can be pretty sure about the quality of generic medications-- this isn't always true in other countries.
Hope this helps, BY
