Resuming a cocktail of Abacavir
Jun 22, 2011
is it anyway safe considering to restart this treatment after say 2 - 3 years break
Response from Dr. Henry
If you stopped abacavir without concern for hypersensitivity reaction and are HLA B5701 negative then generally safe to restart abacavir containing regimen. Benefit of abacavir in new regimen would be related to whether you had developed resistance earlier when taking HIV meds-a review of your treatment history and possibly a resistance test would be worthwhile when constructing regimen.
