  • Effectiveness
    Major (for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV))
  • Side effects
    Moderate (lipodystrophy (lipoatrophy or loss of fatty tissue))
  • Adherence
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: Two pills a day...not too bad in relation to the history of Hiv and AIDS. This was my first med and didn't know a whole lot about it....took it on my doc's recommendation. After about a year and half i developed lipoatrophy in my arms and legs...which became painful. Then i asked to switch meds. And the lipoatrophy has gotten better...still would not recommend this drug combo as i've lost critical fat that may never come back and i still had leg issues.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
