After almost 6 years being undetectable, I recently found out that I have become resistant to my current meds:  Lexiva, Epizicom, and Norvir. A current genotype test shows that I am resistant to just about everything. Recently, my Doc did a phenotype test to find out what new meds I might be able to take. Anyone know what new meds are available and what the side effects may be? I'm making myself sick worring about what the new meds will be and what the side effects may be.

Well, for starters you might begin with our own in-house section and familiarize yourself with ones you do not know and relevant side effects, etc:


It's very up to date, and generally lists things that are even in Phase 3 drug trials.

As far as the newest things in the past few years, you should read up on Prezista, Aptivus, Isentress, Maraviroc and Etravirine.  All of these are recently FDA approved except the last one which I think will be approved in January.

Right. Check out the article Oct 23 article on this Site regarding Insentress (raltegravir). It might be a good candidate for someone with resistance problems.
