Re: ADDING 1 REGIME
Oct 5, 2001
Due to fear of drug interaction between Rifampicin and Nevirapine I added NVP after I was done with anti tuberculosis that was after 3 months I started on with 3TC & AZT. Will this bring resistance to NVP ? Both the regimens were working perfectly before the addition of the 3rd regimen. Please also suggest me some effective medicines for FOLLICULITIS. I'm suffering from severe follicutis on my back. Thanks.
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your question.
Provided that your viral load was undetectable at the time of the addition of nevirapine, the risk of resistance is low. This should be validated by checking your viral load now that youre on the three drug regimen.
As for folliculitis, I like to use topical clindamycin as a starting treatment. If this is not helpful, then oral antibiotics, such as doxycycline or minocycline can be considered. BY
