Hello, I am currently a pharmacy student and I have a question about ritonavir. Due to manufacturers increase price on ritonavir, is there another HIV med or upcoming HIV med that you may know which can potentially take the place of ritonavir as a booster in the future? Thank you

Response from Dr. Henry

Stopping Meds but not by choice
Delaying treatment for HCV ??
