drop in cd4 count and %
Jun 1, 2008
I started Atripla at the end of February 2008 after my cd4 count dropped to 279 (31%); vl 15,000. First labs after 6 weeks (4/08) were cd4 605 (44%); vl 174. Second labs another 6 weeks later (5/08) were cd4 400 (33%); vl undetectable. Should i be concerned with this drop in cd4 count and percent/alter treatment course?

Nope, I wouldn't change a thing. I think things are just bouncing around a bit as your immune system gets control of the virus.
