Start therapy

Dec 22, 2013

My viral load increase in one year from 8000 to 31.000. My CD4 are around 800. I started with Presista, Norvir and Kivexa. Can this drugs lower my viral load and when i can expect that? When I can stop with therapy?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, these HIV meds will decrease the HIV viral load to undetectable levels, provided you take the medications as prescribed. Unfortunately, HIV infection is a chronic infection and requires daily, life-long medications to keep the virus suppressed. So you should not stop HIV treatment.
