Questions never answered
Jan 3, 2009


I am allergic to Viramune so I cannot take NNRTIs. I am not resistant to any medications. My doctor recently prescribed Norvir, Reyataz, and Truvada. Is this a good regimen given that I cannot take NNRTIs? Thank you.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

If you're allergic to nevirapine, it's certainly possible to take other first-line treatments. Indeed, the regimen that your doctor has prescribed is one of the most commonly used, first-line regimens in the US.
