Erm, why?

If the problem is down to too much Norvir via the Kaletra, then a switch to boosted Reyataz and keep the Truvada is prob enough of a change. This would cut the daily Norvir by half.

What exactly is the gut problem? Or is it a liver poblem?

This makes it all a bit complex...

Using 3 drugs from 2 different drug classes usually makes a decent combo. Reyataz + Isentress is already 2 drugs from 2 different classes, so a single nuke may be enough.

Whether this is possible will depend on your treatment history and resistance profile. Keeping AZT may be the best option virologically speaking :(.

But me, if I were you, I would be talking to my doc about using just 1 nuke, probably FTC (Emtriva), with the other 2 drugs suggested.
