How long do you doctors have left he's in jail as of now and they just got him on medication two days will the medication help at all.

These are always difficult questions to answer without examining the patient and knowing what all the laboratory results are and what all the underlying active medical problems might be. If his doctors have started HIV treatment then they must think HIV treatment is going to be helpful for him.
