Response from Dr. Moyle
I am sorry to hear about the test results. Sounds like your doctor has given you sound advice and started you on the simplest and one of the most widely recommended first treatments. If you take it reliably and respond well (viral load <50 within 6 months) it may be the only treatment you need. Good Luck for the Future Dr Moyle
