fat friendly regimen?
Aug 30, 2005

Is the regimen of Videx EC, Reyataz and Emtriva relatively fat friendly?

Response from Dr. Conway

Absolutely. Emtriva and Reyataz have been shown to be extremely safe in a number of clinical trials, although not together. Videx has been quite unfairly lumped together with Zerit as a drug that causes lipid abnormalities and body shape changes. There are no data to support this in a convincing way, however.

Confused as to next options
