|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.
