Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

There are nearly 30 different medications for treating HIV. Which one is right for you depends on the drug resistance pattern of your virus, possible side effect or toxicity problems, possible drug-drug interactions and life style constraints (such as when you work or eat).

Hopefully, if you're able to keep to the adherence and dietary restrictions of your current regimen, it should work for many, many years to come.

A nice starting point for more information is the late Bonnie Goldman's HIV Treatment 101s.

Hope that helps, BY

4th time asking, running out of time
