My Hiv has been supressed

Apr 25, 2010

What does that mean exactly, can I get infected again, and why do I have to continue to take my meds(Atripla)?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Because suppression of HIV viral load in the blood does NOT mean that the virus is gone from your body. If you stop your HIV meds the viral load will reappear.
