Amazed by VL drop.
Jul 3, 2005
After my most recent treatment interruption from 5/04 to 4/05 I began 1x day of Truveda, Norvir and Reyataz. My vl on3/30/05 was 479,000 w/ CD4 of 326(I began treatment immediately). Prior vl's had been 374,00 on 3/17, and 191,000 on 11/01/04.
On 6/14/05 my labs came back with a undetectable vl(yea!)w/ CD4 of 495. My question is, have you ever seen such a dramtic drop?
I'm beyond pleased, but there is part of me that wonders if any sort of lab snafu could have fouled the results on either date. Thanks for all that you do.

Uncommon, but not unheard of to see that amount of drop in 6-8 weeks.
