Hey doctor whats your comments about this new Drug in terms of side effects and long term of treatment? Versus the old combinations with truvada /kaletra and Reyataz ..thank you

Response from Dr. Henry

In a study comparing Stribild to a boosted atazanavir based regimen both regimens performed well in treating HIV infection with roughly similar overall side effect problems. I havent seen data comparing a Kaletra based regimen to Stribild. In general atazanavir based regimens are slightly/modestly better tolerated than Kaletra based regimen with much variability from person to person. KH
