restarting treatment
Jan 25, 2012

i had hysterectomy in November and i was so sick i could not take my treatment for 2 months, now that i am better will it still work or should i change my medicateion?

Response from Dr. Henry

The chances for a previously used regimen, once stopped, to work OK when restarted varies depending on the exact regimen and past treatment history and chances for drug resistance. In most/many cases restarting previously effective regimen does work OK but many factors influence the odds for success-would discuss details with your HIV specialist. KH

Possible Drug Interaction?
Beard has stopped growing and is patchy.
