Response from Dr. Little
The best I can offer is the suggestion to look up your closest University teaching institution with and HIV care program. Newer drugs that may be only available through an expanded/compassionate access program may be available at this site. You will also likely get a very educated second opinion about whether all reasonable choices have been exhausted. Good luck.
