Is thies medication right...
Jun 24, 2009
My mom cd4 count when tested was found to be 307 and HIV-1 was 8866. Our doctor has prescribed for VIRADAY, is this tablet right and what all side effects will be there from VIRADAY. Will her CD4 count come to normal i.e 350..?
Response from Dr. Young
Viraday is an Indian manufactured, generic version of tenofovir/FTC/efavirenz-- better known in the US as Atripla. The regimen combination is widely prescribed and very highly recommended.
If your mother is able to tolerate and adhere to her HIV medications, I would expect that her viral load will reach undetectable levels within 2-3 months and have CD4 count increases of between 100-200 cells within 1 year.
Best of health to her.
