Intelence.
« on: November 03, 2014, 07:55:07 PM »
Just wondering why this description is given for this med under the guidelines listed on this site under the category of meds.

"Intelence is not approved for people with HIV that have no resistance to other available antiretroviral drugs. This includes HIV-positive people beginning treatment for the first time."

What I'm wondering is why would it be restricted for those who have no resistance?

Probably because in clinical trials the data showed it to work best that way.

Intellence is a second line drug.  It isn't given to treatment naive, it's reserved for those with resistance.

That's exactly why he's asking.  He was put on it and has no resistance issues.  When we talk on the phone, all I do is confuse him.   :o 

Along these sames lines, Mark said he read that's it's ok to take all 400mg in the morning instead of 200mg twice a day.  I'm wondering because a couple of times per week I forego the evening dose if I'm going out.  It does not mix well with alcohol.

Oh I'm sorry I was confused. 

I'm sure they could technically use it on anyone just like they use meds that are only approved for treatment naive on the treatment experienced.
