Re: What will be my 3rd regimen?
Nov 5, 2003

My previous message to you said, "My genotype test says my virus is still resistant to all current meds available. (Even the ones I failed!)". BUT I meant to say my genotype test says my virus seems to be wild and able to be killed by all currently available medications Wondering if I should fix something even if it is not broken. The pile of pills are a headache-day in and day out. or just wait till I fail this cocktail?

Response from Dr. Henry

I often think that the best time to change/improve/simplify a regimen is when it is working and you have lost of options (I figured there was a typo in the last message). Your HIV doc should be able to offer you some simplified suitable options. KH
