|HIV.drugs...truvada and sustiva

Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thank you for your post.
Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. You should be starting on medications in the near future.
Provided that you do not have transmitted drug resistance or significant kidney disease (or perhaps bone disease-- issues related to tenofovir toxcity), the combination of Truvada (tenofovir+FTC) and Sustiva (efavirenz; otherwise available as Atripla) should be a very potent and well tolerated combination.
Hope this helps. Be well, BY
