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?

Response from Mr. Vergel

If your creatinine clearance has not dropped below 60 and you are not fatigued or depressed, do not switch. To find your creatinine clearance use this formula:
