YES!: When antiviral medications are taken in combinations and as prescribed with strict adherence to the regimens, these drugs can allow patients to live for decades with good quality lives. The drugs must be taken faithfully, and it is best not to have additional exposures to other strains of HIV (safe sex and no needle sharing).
