combivir and reyataz combo
Dec 17, 2005
I recently switched my regimen from sustiva and combivir to reyataz and combivir, due to side effects that I could not deal with. My last blood work stated my cd4 - 900s and VL 110. I have been on my new regimen for over a month. My new blood test came in today and stated cd4 650s and VL 99. I was a bit upset with the drop in tcell count and not a substantial drop to undetectable with my VL. Is this a normal range for t cells to fall etc. I recently was diagnosed in JULY 04 and have been on meds since then and saw my VL drop dramatically and my CD4 count increase. Should I be concerned about gaps in the cd4 count ranges, or is that a normal rise and fall for and HIV person. I see my dr now every 2 months instead of monthly. And He is not reachable for 2 weeks, SHould i be concerned? thank you

I do not think you need to be concerned.
