Aug 13, 2009

Hi Dr Robert, you are a very special man, thank you so much for your views on hiv,

my cd4 is 300 at the moment and l am ready to start meds for the first time,

could you please let me know the once daily meds that are availble,

Also Dr Robert what are the new once daily meds on the horizen ???

thank you so much

Response from Dr. Frascino


The most common and widely available once-per-day regimen is Atripla, a convenient once-per-day tablet that contains three antiretroviral medications (efavirenz, emtricitabine and tenofovir). There are also other once daily options, but these involve taking more than one tablet. Talk to your HIV specialist about your various options. Finally, yes, additional once daily treatment regimens are indeed "on the horizon."

Good luck. Be well.

Dr. Bob
