Hives on reyataz - any advice on switching back to Sustiva?
« on: February 05, 2009, 02:23:06 PM »
Hi experts and others,
I am currently taking reyataz, norvir, truvada.  I switched to this from Truvada Sustiva. That combo was cool for two months but then drove me a bit psychologically nuts.  Well I have had hives for about 2 weeks. I am 100% compliant. The problem is I am far from my ID and in a way different time zone, for a month.
These hives are driving me nuts! My mind seems fine but its just so freaking itchy. Its not the dry scales I have had, which cleared up and the ID said was fungus that would clear up.  Now its tiny red freckles, really just hives. 
What if I switched back to sustiva for three weeks till I see my ID again?
I will call him and ask. When i switched off Sustiva, i stopped that one day and took the Reyataz the next. ID's instructions.  Is the switch the same in the other direction. Just stop Reyataz and start the Sustiva again? Or are there resistance issues?? 
Just want the info. I find my ID responds better when i discuss with some of my own good information.
Best regards

provided you had no break between Sustiva and Reyataz this should be fine

otherwise, perhaps better to make another arrangement (this could include stopping everything for a week or two but better to go straight to an alternative for the itchy R)
