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!
