Not on meds

Mar 15, 2006

My cousin was diagnosed wtih HIV lst summer but is not on any medications. He goes to the doctor once a month. Is ths normal(to not be on any medications)?

Response from Dr. Young

Yes, it's entirely ok for many patients with HIV not to be on medications. So long as your cousin is feeling well (asymptomatic) and has a normal CD4 cell count (greater than 350), there's probably no need to be on meds right now.

Thanks for posting. BY
