Older PIs
Jun 23, 2003

Do you think everyone should get off the older protease inhibitors even if they are doing well and if not, why not?

Response from Dr. Boyle

While there are many advantages to the newer PIs and to ritonavir-boosted PIs, not everyone needs to switch to them. Each patient should be informed of the risks and benefits associated with these medications and then, in consultation with their doctor, decide if a switch would be appropriate.
