Can't not seem to get undetectable

Jun 8, 2013

Hi. I have been HIV positive now for 6years. In this time I have been unable to achieve a undetectable status. I have a constant battle with my clinic over me taking my tablets on time. I have 100% adherence. I was just wondering if there is anything else that could be stopping me from achieving a undetectable viral load. I am currently taking truvada, ritonavir,maraviroc and darunavir once aday. I have been on about 4 different regimes since my diagnoses. I am getting very concern about my viral load. It's currently at 57 but just will not go any lower. The clinic put it solely on to me in the fact that I am not taking my tablets on time, even though I am. Becoming tired of arguing my point with them now. So desperate to look at different avenues to achieve a undue table viral load. Also my partner is HIV positive but not on medication we have unprotected sex on occasions could this be stopping me from being undectable. Thank you for your help.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I am not sure why you are taking all those meds once daily. The darunavir/ritonavir and maraviroc should be taken twice daily.

Can you sero-convert again after 1st HIV infection?
