Response from Dr. Young

Hello Rachel in India.

Do know that HIV medications today are most often very well tolerated and can improve or sustain health.

There are many factors that go into deciding what medications are the best to take. I've just written response to one question that provides a brief overview of the general strategy that I use to choose medications.

Perhaps the best single starting point for your learning abou this subject is's Resource Center on Starting HIV Treatment. Take a look there; please feel free to write me back with any additional questions.

Be well, BY
