Side Effects are to much
Jul 28, 2008

I take viread, Reyataz, Norvir, Videx EC,and Ziagen.

Is there any other medication combinations i can take that have less side effects. I am resistant to non nukes.

thank you

Response from Dr. Henry

Pxs resistant to NNRTIs often need a boosted (using low dose ritonavir) protease inhibitor based regimen such as yours. Many pxs tolerate your regimen fairly well. There are a large number of potential other regimens to consider. Your HIV specialist is the best person to review your past treatment history/resistance status and suggest alternative regimens trying to address any particular side effects you are experiencing. KH
