Response from Dr. Holodniy

He needs to be on an aggressive HIV regimen. He has advanced HIV infection and AIDS and is at serious risk for developing serious infections. The doctor is correct, in that he needs to be on a couple of antibiotics to prevent infections.

Limited time on atripla, good or bad?
Viral load slightly increased after 3 months
