Eliminating Videx from combination therapy
Sep 6, 2008

My physician suggested that I eliminate Videx from my treatment regimen, as my viral load is undetectable and has been for a number of years now. What are the pros and cons of doing this?

Response from Dr. Henry

A particular HIV med can often be dropped from a regimen though the advisability of that depends on the regimen and treatment history, clinical status, likelihood of resistance, and whether a switch to another drug is planned. KH
