Best latest once a day treatment
May 20, 2012

Doctor what is the best recommended once a day hiv treatment regime that you find to be highly effective.

You can advice on the best once a day pill or alternatively the best two times a day combo. I am not sick yet and still healthy despite being positive.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

There isn't one "best" initial HIV treatment, but rather, the principles of HIV medications speak to individualizing the choice of medications, as there are several regimens that are recommended.

For example, if one looks at the current US treatment guidelines, there are 4 "Preferred" and 8 "Alternative" regimens. How one chooses a regimen is by considering a host of factors, including drug resistance, medical history (or risk factors) and life style factors (work habits, diet, pill number and dosing frequency).

I'd recommend starting with's Resource Center on Starting HIV Treatment.

Be well, BY
