The early drugs didn't have peppy names:  AZT, Hivid, Videx, Zerit... I think at some point the marketing people wised up.  You know, around the same time that they recruited all of those attractive mountain climbers to represent the face of AIDS, and hide all of the KS lesions.

I always thought Atripla was a bit of a cop-out.  It's so obvious and it seems like they didn't think about that one like they had the others...
