I moved recently to sweden and was wondering if i shall ask my ID dr for a better option than Atripla and what options are available in sweden ? I thought maybe the new medications will have lesser long term side effects compared to Atripla ! Please if any one can advise me i will be thankfull:) kiss

Glad to hear things are going well.

Hope the move to Sweden works out well for you, I've visited a few times and as a visitor it was a blast  :)

Keep us posted.

Oh as for what treatment combinations, well I'm presuming Sweden would have pretty modern options available but why not ask the NGO I'm sure they would be willing to give some insights

You're welcome and sorry for the delay in replying to your thread. Hectic week here.

So full disclosure I've never taken the combo your are on myself, but plenty of members have who might chime in. Now if it was me than it would depend i.e i would not be switching unless there was a clear reason to do so.

So if what you have is working for you and, you are not having any issues or lab concerns why change. Next time you see an ID doctor grill them,and ask why they are proposing a change.

General speaking though, there are more modern combo's that are often kinder & sometimes more convenient to take with less interactions etc etc etc

Hi Guys, just though to drop a message after my doctors visit today. So i have been on Atripla for 3 years , been UD and my CD4 in the range of 700 to 800 . My Dr didnt find a need to change my medication to a newer ones as long as my medication is working and i am UD. I told him i am affraid of the long term side effects he said well all of them having the same long term side effects if it is going to happen. He also mentioned that from his point of view he trust the old versions if they are working well because of better experience with them. He said if i want to change he can still consider it in my next visit in August. He said ur liver nd kidney are working well so dnt worry
Any how he did the resistance test today to have it in my record for my next visiy kf we will change atripla
Honestly i have to admit that i am fine with atripla . No major issues or vivid dreams happening now adays , my weight is stable and i am excersizing every day. Any comment from you guys? Thanks
