ARV combination
      #273714 - 09/03/13 05:04 PM


Been reading some of the threads here. I'm kinda new to the meds everyone is taking and mentioning here.

May I know what med combination are you taking?

Mine's Lamivudine/Zadovudine and Efavirens. I heard that our first line of meds that we have is the least that would be recommended in some countries. Idk.

It is difficult for me to say becaue there are sooo amny different meds nowadys . And then to add confusion they are given different names. You got you single pills taken along with, then you got you 3in 1 pill and now anew one just came out . Me , I'm on Atripla, have been for years now.

Look up to the Heavens for the answers to Lifes questions .

yes, the newer antiretrovirals are recommended for they have less side effects and have a more practical approach for taking them. But all ARVS combos (old or new) are an invaluable tool or weapon for fighting the awesome feisty HIV Virus. If for some a newer medicine is not working then they can resort to the older ones or viceversa. Best regards to all.

Etravirine, Lopinavir/Ritonavir, Raltegravir

Nobody can give you HIV. You have to take it.
