  • Perceived effectiveness for HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus): Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 600 mg-200 mg-300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Out of the two regimens i've tried( Trizivir was the other) this is the best...minimal side effects so far. I do have at times pill fatigue, but once a day, better than the past and one can hope better in the future. I take my pill at night time before bed....if i take it anytime during waking hours...the dizzy tunnelvision is there for a couple of hours...and if i run around at work....i get lightheaded. I would suggest finding the best time for your life.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
