Response from Dr. McGovern

There is not a moment to waste. Yes absolutely, take these medications. Truvada will be an excellent therapy for both HIV and HBV. Sustiva is excellent for HIV. I assume that you are also on therapy for cryptococcal infection as well.

Remember to take your medications without fail in order to get the best response!

My best wishes to you for improved health.

Blood Bank Test found HBc
