Dec 12, 2007

I`m 37 years old. I started meds (Truvada+Viramune) in February 2007. Cd4 up 194 11% to 305 19% and vl 53.000 to indetectable after 4 months. Now i`m still indetectable. This regimen contribute to lipodistrofy? Can i use this regimen for many years? I`m feeling very well with truvada and viramune. Thanks a lot. Paulo

Response from Dr. Henry

Though I haven't used or seen much data on the combination of Truvada + Viramune I would expect the relative risk for fat problems/lipodystrophy to be quite low based on the good track record of the individual drugs in the regimen. Once suppressed I would expect most patients to maintain a very durable (long term) benefit as long as they remain diligent about not missing doses. KH
