This booklet will give you information about new drugs to treat HIV infection, called protease inhibitors. Since these are new medicines, you may have questions about how they work and what to expect when taking them. No booklet can answer all of your questions, or take the place of a doctor in helping you make the important decisions you are facing, but this information will help you understand the basics about HIV protease inhibitors.
The six Department of Health and Human Services agencies that co-sponsor the HIV/AIDS Treatment Information Service (ATIS) provided support for this booklet. ATIS is a free telephone reference service for people who need information about HIV and AIDS treatment. Reference specialists at ATIS answer questions and provide information on federally approved treatments for HIV and AIDS.
