re: newly diagnosed
May 1, 2008

hi doc thanks for your quick reply.ofcourse i will discuss this regimen with my gp.but i was wondering why new drugs like atripala,truvada,isentress etc have not been suggested.sorry i dont have much idea about the hiv drugs but was excited to know that these drugs are more potent than old hiv drugs. thanks for your time god bless you ur opinion is needed

Response from Dr. Henry

There are many treatment options available in resource rich areas so the decision on what to start with can often be individualized to some degree. Many of the currently widely used regimens are very potent and generaloly well tolerated with fewer of the fat side effects seen in older regimens. Good luck. KH

Not a question but a thank you!
Depression and Atripila
