    She agrees that taking medications to protect the baby is the right thing to do and is ready to start the difficult regimen associated with HAART. What regimen do you recommend?
    A) Single-dose ZDV treatment as per peripartum prophylaxis protocol.
    B) Any single antiretroviral medication, since they are all similarly effective and minimizing the total
    doses of drugs is safer for the developing fetus.
    C) Any of the standard antiretroviral combinations, because combination therapy is essential for lowering the viral load and minimizing resistance.
    D) A select combination of antiretroviral medications, because some drugs are category C and some are category B.
    E) Any of the standard antiretroviral combinations, as long as it does not include ZDV, which is a
    notorious teratogen.
