WHAT IS HIV DRUG RESISTANCE?
HIV drug resistance occurs when the virus changes, potentially causing a medication to stop working.
There are 2 different types of hiv drug resistance
Transmitted drug resistance
Caused by exposure to a strain of HIV already resistant to certain medications or classes of medication
developed drug resistance
Can occur when you're not 100% adherent to your treatment regimen
Don't let the virus outsmart
When you miss doses, the virus can
mutate to resist your HIV medication. But
there are some HIV medications that could help reduce that risk.
Have fearless conversations with your
doctor. They can help you understand
the factors that put you at risk, and find
the treatment that works for you.
