Kaletra & Truvada v Kaletra Combivir
« on: March 07, 2007, 08:07:30 PM »
Would be grateful for any shared experience on the above combos.  Have been off treatment for 2 years and numbers have been holding well but have dipped slightly to CD4 550 28% VL 7000.  Feel fine off treatment however want to stay ahead of the game.  I've taken Combivir before with no issues however am new to Truvada and Kaletra and am curious as what to expect.  I'm quite cautious and nervous about restarting therapy as my last experience was a hypersensitivity reaction to Nevirapine, it was nasty.

The only good advice I can tell you is to do research all the meds your doc recommended and you make the decision based on what you feel is best for your lifestyle.

I am on Kaletra/Truvada for almost a month now and have handled the side-effects pretty good. Diahhrea is very common in many drugs, even non HIV, so don't be afraid of it.
Infected: April 2005
12/6/06 - Diagnosed HIV positive
12/19/06 - CD4 = 240  22% VL = 26,300
1/4/07 - CD4 = 200 16% VL = ?
2/9/07 = Started Kaletra/Truvada
3/13/07 = CD4 = 386 22% VL ?
