what should I do
Jun 13, 2005

Should I continue to stay off my regimen and monitor my #'s before making the decision to go on to PI's which are now the only class of meds to which my virus is sensitve to? I am scared to start kaletra, and Invirase becasue I am too vain about the way I look. Is this a valid concern and should expect to look sickly after 6 months to a year? I do not know what to do. VL 63,000 TC 500's

Response from Dr. Henry

I have had good results with patients on Kaletra/Invirase with generally tolerable lipid and fat problems. KH

HIV meds and possible sun reaction?
