Twice a day reyataz?
Apr 2, 2004

I'm going to be starting Reyataz with Ziagen and Epivir. I want to take Reyataz twice a day like the Ziagen and Epivir. On my last regimen I had fewer side effects taking Viramune/Epivir and Viread twice a day instead of once a day (awkward cause I had to cut the single Viread in half). Is there any reason I can't take half the Reyataz (one pill) twice a day?

Response from Dr. Henry

There is not alot of informatiojn available about dosing Reyataz twice a day (200 mg BID). Most experts I know are using Reyataz once a day usually with 100 mg ritonavir. I would feel uncomfortalbe recommending to a patient to use Reyataz twice a day though from my understanding of the drug levels achieved it might work for most patients (though the goal is working for 100%).
