Response from Mr. Vergel

It is difficult to understand what you are taking but I am assuming you are taking Viread with Epivir with something else that I could not understand. Please look at your bottles and resend the email with the correct names.

Just try to eat 3-6 small meals a day with lean meats, nuts, vegetables, fruits, olive oil, wild rice, multi grain bread, oatmeal, eggs, low fat cheese, and avoid fried foods, fast greasy food, heavy sweets, too much alcohol (over two drinks a day), and do not smoke. Get enough rest and exercise at least 3 times a week for an hour. Let me know a little more about your situation, OK? Nelson
