Can you call the pharmacy and let them tell you what the latest combo your doctor prescribed ? Wouldn't that solve the issue ?

    Thanks Jeff ,
                       When I contacted the V.A.   they were unable to figure out what MEDS I am on ,
  I found this to very odd , to say the least .

The only other thing I can think of is to call back tomorrow and insist that they give you the information you need to get back on track .

Do you have a stockpile of the old regimen that you can continue with until this is cleared up?  I'd gladly help ya buddy if I was on that combo.

So am I. Darunivar and Prezista are the same thing.

I would hope they replaced something else with the Epzicom. Norvir works well with Epzicom.

Hopefully you'll find out you are supposed to be on Norvir, Epzicom and Prezista. This is the combo I am on and it works well for me. Epzicom does come with the warning that, once you start on it, not to retake it if you stop using it for any great length of time.

All three have copay assistance, too. Make sure you sign up for it through all three.
Reality is frequently inaccurate.

With all the issues of late with VA, I'd contact them again and restate the issues.  If they insist that you can't get you in any sooner, threaten to contact your Senator.  :)  That'll make them nervous as hell.

continued good wishes

    So.......................   as I was driving to Saint Louis today ; to drop off
 my twin at the Air Port , I took a detour to the V.A.
   I talked with a Pharmacist about my issues of being confused about what
 pills to take .  He laughed when I told him the P.A. in the clinic said I was becoming more and more confused  ;D
  Yes I was confused , to many f'n pills !

  Now I know I'm  prescribed : Epzicom
                                                Prezista
                                                Norvir

   I'm still confused , but this is what the very helpful man told me to take .

   Thanks all for you help  :)
