My viral load has remained suppressed for more than 18 months on darunavir/norvir monotherapy and, germane to this thread, within a few days I felt  a lot less wiped out than when I was on combination therapy.

Zohar,

You still don't understand.  You are not on a monotherapy if you are takiing duraunavir + norvir, as that is two drugs.  You are still on a combo, just not on a triple or more therapy.

I'm sorry, but you are misinformed.  As the headline and  the article show (cited again below), darunavir and norvir  prescribed together are known as 'monotherapy' because, in spite of being a two drug regimen, the norvir at the dose its used here, is given specifically as a darunavir booster, rather than for its antirviral activity.

Hi, As I said above I've been on it for over 18 months now and have consistently remained undetectable. Truvada just didn't agree with me and not only would I  feel shattered but friends would comment on how worn out I looked. Literally, within around 48 hours of dropping Truvada I felt so much better -like a constant hangover had lifted. The fatigue I experience now tends to be episodic, whereas before it was ever-present.  So boosted darunavir monotherapy definitely seems to be the most suitable option for me.

12 hours ago you sure were singing from a different hymnal.

To clarify, when I was on combination therapy my energy levels were far, far lower than when I switched to monotherapy. I do still get tired now, but it's less constant and more manageable.
