Starting HIV MED at CDCount of 1021
Jun 6, 2006

Dear Doctor, This site has been very useful, please continue the good work. My cd count is 1024 , do you think I should start HIV Med? I am very healthy and does not have any infection, however my husband died early last year from AIDS and I think I got it four years ago after our marriage. From your study, what is the progression rate? I live in Nigeria and the HIV meds available are stil not very sofisticated. thanks Uche

Response from Dr. Wohl

Dear Uche,

If you are not HIV infected you do not need to take HIV medications. If you are unsure if your are HIV+, consider getting tested.


crixivan, good or bad?
