One of my relatives is HIV+, his CD4 count is ranging from 275-325
Jan 11, 2013


Yesterday I send one request for more information regarding my relative about HIV+ but didn't got any reply.

Few words from you will be highly appreciable.

Thnx Arindam

Response from Dr. Young

Hello Arindam and thanks for posting.

I am not sure if I located your previous question, but please feel free to repost them here.

In brief though, your relative has a CD4 count that meets all criteria for starting on HIV medications (antiretrovirals). The selection of the medications should be based on tolerability and toxicity profile, especially coupled to the patient's health profile.

For more information about starting on medications, take a look at's Resource Center on Starting HIV Treatment.

Hope that helps, BY

Complera and Valtrex
