|Ziagen, Viread and Sustiva
Aug 6, 2004
You doctors do a GREAT job here answering all questions! I thank you all for your time, patience, and dedication.
Simple question Is Ziagen, Viread and Sustiva a combo associated with lypodystrophy? Thanks.
Response from Dr. Henry
That combination has not been studied much (? since Viread and Ziagen are made by marker competitors who tend to use their own products in studies they support). Sustiva has been linked to liposytrophy at a modest rate while the other two drugs are less linked but lipodystrophy can still be seen though perhaps at a lower rate than seen with some other combinations.
