Anti-viral meds since 1996

Aug 15, 2010

I have been on crixivan combivir since 12/96 This months lab results my vl undetectable still but cd4 drop[ed from 789 to 588. Should I be concerned? I have never had any problems with my cocktail since being on it

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would not be concerned. I suspect your CD4% has not changed, and what you are seeing is your CD4 count bouncing around in the normal range.

Lymphocyte Subpopulation
CD4 decreasing, VL undetectable at 9 months on Atripla
