Jul 10, 2012
After consultation with a specialist, the following specific HARRT regime was drawn up:
Abacavir 600mg once daily Lamivudine 300mg once daily Lopinavir 400mg twice daily Ritonavir 100mg twice daily
What three types of patients is this treatment regime designed for?
| Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
I'm not sure about three types of patients, but a regimen of two NRTIs (abacavir and lamivudine) and a ritonavir-boosted protease inhibitor (lopinavir, aka, Kaletra) could be used for first-line patients or for patients with prior treatment experience (either for switching treatment or drug resistance).
If your not sure why your HIV provider has selected this regimen, it's worth a conversation.
