viral load flux

Jul 14, 2013

how soon does your viral load drop on meds and how fast does it go back up if you miss a dose or two? case in point if im undetectable for a long time but miss three days of meds do i shoot back up above 1000?

thanks this site is a real help in my time of need. god bless.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

If you have been undetectable for a long time, then missing 3 days is not likely to result in a rebound like that. However, always a good idea to make sure you have enough HIV meds on hand and not forget to take any doses.
