Lipo friendly?
Aug 27, 2004

As medications go, and as much as is currently known, is the combination of reyataz, epivir, and emtriva relatively lipo friendly?

Response from Dr. Conway

Reyataz is very lipo friendly. In fact, there are a few case reports of single drug switching from another agent to Reyataz (in the setting of full virologic suppression) leading to some reversal of lipodystrophy.

Both Epivir and Emtriva and very lipo friendly, but they are similar drugs and would not be used together. You need a third agent in this regimen!!!

drug screening test??
