Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

From the nature of your drug regimen, you likely have a drug-resistant HIV. Because of this, I'd want to know much more about the patterns of drug resistance before suggesting changing from a virologically successful treatment.

In our clinic, regimens like yours tend to be very well tolerated (though we'd have caution about using d4T).

If your having confusion about your medications, it is a really good time to discuss your needs and concerns with your doctor or case manager. Are you taking other medications for other conditions? Are you using a pill box or other reminder systems?

I hope this helps; write us back with any follow up questions. BY

I am really confused....
