Forstavir-3 for HIV
Sep 30, 2012

when i found i am hiv positive my viral load is 2300 nd CD4=59 and after using 3months of Forstavir-3 now viral load is 79 and CD4=157. Is it possible and my age is 23, can i use it?

Response from Dr. McGowan

I believe Forstavir-3 is akin to Atripla. Your viral load is coming down and your CD4 count has gone up. I would continue to monitor your response until your viral load is undetectable....so it should keep going down. It is important that you continue to take your medications with full adherence. Good luck
