My therapy (Kaletra & Combivir) is working very well
Nov 1, 2003

Just wanted to drop you a line saying that my therapy is working very well. I've been diagnosed hiv+ one year ago. I'm taking Kaletra and Combivir since five months. All side effects (which really weren't that serious - some weak diarrheas, a weak fatigue) disappeared within the first six weeks. My viral load dropped down from 350.000 to 13 within four months. Before starting treatment I was so frightened how everything would be taking the meds and if I could carry on my normal life like before. And I could and can, without any restrictions. I'm feeling really good although the last year has been a very difficult time for me. But life goes on ... with me!

Response from Dr. Young

Thank you for your post-- know that your words are of tremendous value to the many readers who are afraid of side effects, affraid to start medications.

Let us all know who you do every few months-- there will be lots of interest.

Good luck for future health and thanks for reading. BY
