Response from Dr. Henry

If you have the resources it may be worth seeing if your can get Strocrine and the equavalent of Truvada from india shipped to you. Otherwise retrovir + 3TC + either nevirapine or Kaletra would be OK though side effects usually higher than for what you are now taking ( if you switch may be worth doing before you leave for Egypt to see how you tolerate the new regimen).
