Change on Regimen(2)
Jun 4, 2003

Dear Doctor Henry

Thanks for your answer

In case that the coming checks of VL and CD4 will be <50 and no change, what i should do

1. remain the present regimen

2. add up abacavir in the present regimen

3. replace abacavir to AZT. For your information, there is viread and trizivir selling in thailand yet.

4. any possibility to medication off

I have some problems on anemia and lipoatrophy(veiny arms and legs).

Awaiting your reply

Thanks best regards

Response from Dr. Henry

I would prefer to try and respond once you have been on your current regimen for several months and get your lab results back. At that time if you could summarize once again your treatment history and concerns I would try to offer some advice. KH

Kaletra/ Viread/Epivir combo
very worried about a friend off meds
