Unstructured but consistent
Jan 19, 2007
Hi Guys I suspect Ive been positive for the past 23 years, the last time I inject drugs. I was a-systematic until 2001, when I was hospitalize and diagnose with AIDS (CD4 134, VL 137000) andHIV dementia with two lesions on my brain. The good news, now I have proof I have a brain. Today my CD4 is 499 and my VL is undetectable. Currently my antiviral medications are Viramune and Combivir. I have been following my medication prescribed doses, twice a day, but without any set schedule. For example, one day Ill take my medication at 10:00 am and again at 7:00 pm, the next day at 12:00 pm then at 8:00 pm. My question is this, will my erratic taking of my medication affect its effectiveness. Thanks

Thanks for your post.
Sounds like your medications are working great (and that you have a brain). Your give-or-take and hour variability in your medication regimen dosing is nothing to be worried about at all.
To me, your neither unstructured, nor inconsistent. Here's to your health. BY
