I was tested positive 6 1/2 years ago. T-cell 260 and viral load 25,000.
I started taking Norvir and combovir. My t-cell went to 550 and vl undetectable.
I stayed on that regimen for almost 5 years (t-cell stayed from 500-650 and always undetectable).
3 years ago I was diag. with hodkins and went through chemo. It's been 3 years cancer free.
Is there anything I should be concerned about now that I have switched to 1 day Truvada and Sustiva? Should these do as well as Norvir and combovir?
All side effects of Norvir are now gone. It's been 3 months. T-cell's now at 750.

You should do just fine and it was good for you to get off that high a dose of norvir.
