Answer

Antiretrovirals should be prescribed by an infectious disease specialist. Antiretroviral regimen selection is individualized, on the basis of the following [5] :

  • Virologic efficacy

  • Toxicity

  • Pill burden

  • Dosing frequency

  • Drug-drug interaction potential

  • Drug resistance testing results

  • Comorbid conditions
