six weeks on Truvada/Isentress

Jun 7, 2012

After 6 weeks on the Truvada/Isentress combo my numbers have gone from 350 to 550 CD4 and from 9000 to 60 VL. The side effects are very minimal/none. I was very scared as a treatment naive patient and overly informed as a scientist with access to journals (sometimes we are our own worst enemy arent we?). I just thought I would get it out there to others who are nervous about starting... that hey I am doing ok and heres to better living through chemistry!

So, back at ya. Here's to better life (and health), BY
