from trizivir to kaletra
Sep 11, 2008

Hello Doctor Vergel,

Can a change from trizivir (which I had taken for 5 years, before that 5 years with retrovir+hivid) to kaletra + kivexa accelerate the lipoatrophy? I have started taken this combo 4 months ago to avoid lipo and I think that it might be developping faster. Could this happen, is there another combo that might be more lipo friendly? Many thanks.

Response from Mr. Vergel

Your new combo is not linked to lipoatrophy (fat loss under the skin). Is that what your question is about?
