Response from Dr. Henry

Not sure which drug you are referring to methoned. There is not much experience with Reyataz and Sustiva used together but there is a very real concern about a negative drug interaction so I would not recommend using those drugs. I would discuss your options with a local HIV expert. KH

Question about possible Myopathy?
