Question on meds.
Aug 25, 2010

Yes Doctor. You answered to my last post. No my viral load is still undetectable. He said He that the was a rise in inflammation of my liver or kidneys and he wanted to check it and may have to put me on new meds. But the atripla is still working very well.

Response from Dr. McGowan

It is good that he is screening for these effects with blood tests and not waiting for symptoms or more overt problems. Nowadays we will change meds more often for these findings than for failure of meds to suppress HIV.
