Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thank you for posting.
If your husband is adherent to his medications (Tribuss/Atripla) and he has confirmed HIV viral load, then this indicates that he likely has a drug resistant virus.
While drug resistance testing is generally recommended to aid in selecting a next treatment regimen, it's not available in many places. The regimen of Aluvia (Kaletra) and Lamzid (Combivir) is a very reasonable second-line treatment for people who have experienced failure of the Tribuss/Atripla regimen.
I hope that helps and wish both of you good health. BY
