one dose in two days

Jul 6, 2013

I take kivexa and socrin once a day about a year and a half, that is my first therapy, and was undetectable viral load year before therapy. So two and a half year undetectable. Now I thinking to reduce therapy in one dose in two days per month to see how will be reaction. Please opinion about that? Now my CD4 is 800, 300 when I started terapy.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would not advise decreasing doses or reducing the number of days per month you are on HIV treatment. If you stop completely, it is very likely that your CD4 count will decrease back down to 300, which would not be a good thing.
