viral load and resistance

Aug 26, 2002

Hi My vl is about 600 as of two weeeks ago . I am on combivir/viread/viramune. I had another test done a week ago to see whether this is blip. I called my doctor today but he is on vacation until next week,sept 3, and nobody at the doctors office is available to tell me the results from the new test.

I was wondering if my vl will go too high or develop a lot of resistance before I see the doctor next week. That will be about 3 weeks with detectable vl. thanks

Response from Dr. Young

There shouldn't be too much of a problem in waiting, though I'm bothered by the fact that no one is at the office to assst you with the results. -BY
