not undetectable yet
Jun 22, 2014
Dr. , I am from Brazil! I started my hiv treatment with a viral load of 36.000. After one month it went down to 245 and after three months to 152. I am worried because I am not undetectable yet! Is it normal? I never missed a dose, but some times on saturdays I take my meds a few hours later (when I have a party or birthday) Is it ok to take at these ocasions a few hours later?? I Am taking lamivudine, tenofovir and efevirenz. thank you

You don't indicate what the CD4 count and percent response has been. But in general, I would not be concerned with your viral load response after only 3 months. It's definitely going in the right direction.
