Currently I am not taking anything.. I have an appt with my Doctor next Month and I really want to stick with a regimen but I am looking for something that won't cause facial wasting..please Help!!

Response from Mr. Vergel

You do not say if you have resistance to all the medications you mentioned

Isentress plus Truvada is very user friendly, with no increases in cholesterol, diarrhea and lipoatrophy (facial wasting). But talk to your doctor about your genotype test to ensure that your virus has not developed resistance to them.
