I have been on viracept and combivir since April 99, Aug 99 my test went from vl 66,000 to undetectible and now my tcells went from 317 to 480 i was wondering when do people start n 3 medications. when 2 worked for me right away. do they suddenly stop working and 3 are then needed.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

You ARE on 3 medicines: "Combivir" is the trade name for the combination of zidovudine (Retrovir, AZT) and lamivudine (Epivir, 3TC).
