how long does it take to start ARVs
Feb 20, 2011

is it possible for one diagonised with HVI not to start medicine? how many years does it take for one to start drinking ARVs?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Please address you HIV questions to the HIV forum.

People start HIV medications when their immune system starts to show signs of decline. This is usually measured by looking at the CD4 T cell count.
