Three general ideas increase the chance of your next treatment working.
- Using drugs from a new class.
- Using drugs from classes you have used before but did not develop resistance to.
- Perhaps using more, rather than fewer drugs.
Treatment guidelines also outline ways to choose new drugs. See: www.bhiva.org.
Resistance tests will help pick meds that may work, even when you have some resistance.
