should i start again
Mar 17, 2002

I stopped all my meds last year,(3tc,Seqinaver,dt4)i have been healthy and my mood swings are now in control,I have been for regular check ups and my doctor seems to be very happy with me should i start again

Response from Dr. Aberg

The major reason to start would depend on whether you are having any symptoms of HIV disease or related diseases, what your CD4 count is and possibly your HIV viral load. It sounds like you are doing well off medications but without knowing your CD4 counts (lowest ever, at time when you stopped medications and now), it is hard for me to say when I would advise you to start again. Please see my other 2 questions regarding continuing therapy posted 3/17. 2 questions
