I am not currently on HAART but have started Lipitor for high cholesterol . I read that Lipitor and all statins are immunosuppressive, Is this true? I have had good tcell counts and low viral loads so I don't want to take anything that could affect that.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Why wait to start meds?
