Fuzeon arternatives

Feb 24, 2008

I am currently taking Fuzeon, Prezista, Novir and Issentress. I was taking Trizivir and then switched to Atripla. My question is if the Fuzeon et al quit working what are my options? My doctor has me concerned that i am running out of options. Is this correct?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

It's difficult to answer your question without knowing the patterns of drug resistance after each of your previous regimens.

It is possible (though not certain), that you'll have other treatment alternatives to T20 (Fuzeon) that could be combined with the Norvir/Prezista + Isentress. Ask your doctor for copies of your resistance tests and we can discuss this further.
