Response from Dr. Boyle
This is a very difficult issue and one that most western physicians are not used to dealing with since medications are generally an essential part of our treatment of HIV disease. I recently read an article that may provide some help and you may find it at http://ww2.aegis.org/pubs/atn/2000/ATN35504.html.
I hope you find this helpful.
