whats next
Sep 18, 2002

in response to your answer this is my first drug combo of sustiva and combivir i have never been on anything what is next if i am resistant to one or all of these three?

Response from Dr. Little

There are still many choices - principally involving the use of protease inhibitors. I would urge you to discuss all of the possible treatment options and potential toxicities with your provider - there are still options. A resistance test and a past treatment history will be very useful in picking the next potent regimen.
