least and most prescribed meds?
« on: April 17, 2007, 08:08:34 AM »
Does anyone know how to find out what are the most prescribed and least prescribed meds?  A list with all hiv drugs going from most to least prescribed, for example, would be great. 

Apparently I'm not on a very common regimen.

Thanks,
Sam

Sam,

I am on the same regimen that you are, except I use Fuzeon as well.

Most PI-containing first regimens use either Kaletra or Reyataz as the protease inhibitor.  They are the two recommended PIs for such a regimen.

I'm in a clinical study and Invirase is what is provided by the study.  When the study ends, I plan to switch to Reyataz, because of it's more favorable lipid effects.  I'm not on any lipid meds now, but my cholesterol has been rising throughout the study.

A recent study showed Invirase and Kaletra to be equally effective at controlling HIV, though many docs are of the opinion that Kaletra packs more punch.  That study also showed both drugs effects on lipids to be about the same.

I don't know what your genotype showed.  Perhaps you were put on Invirase because what mutations you have.

I guess Invirase was in use more in the past.

I'm not sure they tested my genotype.

Are you pretty treatment experienced?  I assume so because of the Fuzeon.  How many Invirase and of what mg do you take?  With Norvir?

Thanks for writing,
Sam

I was treatment naive before starting this regimen.  This is my first regimen.  The Fuzeon is part of a clinical study to see the effect of it on resting CD4 cells..
