Doctor wants me to change my Regimine
Oct 5, 2011
I am currently on Atripla and Ziagen. I have been on these meds since I was diagnosed with HIV in 2006. I have been undetectable for the last two years. My doctor has suggested that I change from Atripla to Epzicom and Selzentry because he feels that Atripla has caused kidney problems with some patience. I'm not sure I should change because the Atripla and Ziagen have keep me undetectable. what do you think about making this change?
