Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for your post.
The only FDA-approved once-daily single pill regimen is Atripla. It's likely that there will be an alternative single pill regimen (tenofovir/FTC/rilpivirine) in the next several months.
For now, if you're being "killed" with side effects, I'd have a pretty serious discussion with your doctor about other alternatives. There are a number of different HIV medications that should prove to be well tolerated for you and your body. In my opinion, there are few people who can't stomach an additional few pills to avoid serious side effects.
Hope this helps, BY
Are herbs good for me?
