No experience with the other combo

I'm on Reyataz, Truvada, and Norvir.  My VL is undetectable.  My first regimen.

I haven't had any side affects at all.

egello -- I'm actually on all the drugs you listed:  Truvada, Viramune, Reyataz+Norvir.  Normally, that's considered overkill, but I'm partially resistant to Truvada (and resistant to all the other nukes), so I take both Viramune and Reyataz just to be safe.

I've had no side effects from the Viramune and Reyataz.

I do have diagnosed osteopenia, and slightly elevated creatinine levels, both of which might be related to long-term use of Viread (which is one of the meds in Truvada).  However, I never had a baseline bone density scan done, so I can't be sure.  And elevated creatinine levels can be caused by any number of things.

Hope this helps.

Karl -- all most all the AIDS drugs can sound "spooky" if you read their black box warnings, but those are typically very rare side effects that can be avoided by regular blood test monitoring (for liver/kidney/etc. damage).  For the large majority of those who use it, Viramune is a very safe drug.

  • red pill? or blue pill?
Reyataz, Truvada Norvir. 
Got slightly yellow. That disappeared. No other side effects. Until allergic rash. Then switched off.

Everyone reacts different to each combo and many combos today have little side effects. Good luck

I really liked the Reyataz/Truvada/Norvir combo although '27years' is dead right about the Norvir, they're huge and sometimes I had trouble swallowing them, Reyataz isn't that small either.  I took the meds once a day with my dinner and the only side effects I had were yellow eyes for a short time, compared to my experiences with other meds, these were a breeze!
