Question

What is the best ART?

I want to know which is the best ART and the side effect that comes with art treatment?

Answer

Hi, how are you?

All ART is effective. As long as you do not have resistance to drugs in the combination you are using ART will be effective at treating HIV.

There is no one best combination. There are newer combinations that have less side effects e.g., TLD is replacing TLE as first line as the side effects are more tolerable and is just as effective in suppressing HIV.

As there are so many combinations available it is not possible to list all along with their side effects. Have you had any mentioned to you? Different countries will use different treatments based on their own policy and availability.

Josh.
