THERAPY FOR HIV AND AIDS

Jan 6th 2014 at 1:53 AM

Antiretroviral drugs work by preventing HIV from reproducing within the CD4 cells, stopping the infection of new cells by their copies. By doing this, the amount of HIV in the body decreases and the damage that it can cause the immune system is also reduced.
COMBINED THERAPY
Means to use two or more drugs together, which is popularly known as cocktail and is much more effective and permanent than mono therapy (one drug at a time) to the task of reducing the amount of HIV present in the body, thus preventing the development AIDS symptoms
When a virus population is opposed by more than one drug, it becomes rarer and the emergence of resistant virus mutants.  http://www.bodybuilding-magazin.de/bodybuilding-forum/post210294.html#p210294
Today, mono therapy is used only for HIV-infected in scheme chemoprophylaxis of MTCT pregnant.
SIDE EFFECTS
Aiming to reduce or eliminate certain side, doctors and patients are experiencing change the drug regimen effects.
Several ongoing studies suggest that this strategy can be successful in the case of reduced levels of triglycerides and cholesterol, in contrast to what occurs with lip dystrophy, for which, to date, there is no definitive answer.
In some cases, adverse reactions are more severe at the beginning of treatment, but decreases over time, if the person can tolerate them. In others, can be controlled by raising awareness, that is, begin the drug with lower dose than usual, increasing it gradually.  http://www.realmuscleforum.com/threads/what-is-the-most-effective-way-to-lose-weight.24/
Anyway, awareness is the key word in time to alleviate or eliminate the side effects of Antiviral: it is for doctors to inform patients about the potential reactions (most do not experience any reaction).
