Combinations of drugs
Mar 28, 2013
Is there a drug or drug therapy that combines nukes/non-nukes with Protease Inhibitors AND Integrase inhibitors. It seems that the current and newer combinations (whether it be in an individual pill or multiple pills) only use either Protease OR Integrase. Would not both be more effective? thanks!
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
In the past, studies looked at the question as to whether additional classes or medications (ie., 4 or 5 meds) would be more effective than 3- with the conclusion that there was no additional effectiveness and increased toxicity.
I hope that helps, BY
