i have a history of pancreatitis , twice in 5 years, what med combo would be safe for me to start my meds

Response from Dr. Young

Thank you for your post.

Currently recommended first-line medications for HIV have a low risk of developing pancreatitis.

In patients like you, it would be very imporant to understand why you've had recurrent symptoms and address the underlying cause. Also, once HIV medications were started, adding monitoring for pancreatitis to your routine monitoring labs would seem prudent.

Be well, BY

First choice for treatment
