Is this an ok combo?
May 22, 2008
Hi, my Dr just prescribed Viread 1x day,Ziagen 1-2x day, and, Kaletra 2-2x day, is this generally considered a good combo with least side effects? I previously tried Atripla and could not get over some of the side effects. Thank you for your time!
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for your post.
It sounds like this is still considered your first-line regimen. As such, I find it somewhat unconventional. There are a couple of ways to make your regimen consistent with current treatment guidelines- both would continue the Kaletra protease inhibitor, but alter the nukes.
Both options are currently considered preferred regimens in the US treatment guidelines.
I hope this helps.
