      The Real Mike in Asheville

      From 1997-2001 I was taking 56 pills/day — with 10 different taking times requiring an EXCEL spreadsheet (some twice day, some thrice, sone with food, some empty stomach).

      This is another great step forward — BUT, this is not a license to be reckless: the toll on the digestive track, kidneys and liver REQUIRE constant monitoring, and the fat redistribution is, while not as bad as KS legions, a horrible side-effect.

      Atripla has been a single once a day pill available for years, outside of a slight possible gain in effectiveness (1-3%), this still has the bad side effects and isn’t closer to cure. I just feel real cynical that drug companies only seek to increase profits by lengthening patents and reliance on drugs rather than working on groundbreaking research.
