After 6 months still not undetectable on Atripla
Feb 3, 2013

Good Day Dr Went for my results today and after 6 months my VL 81 and CD4 701. I am on Atripla. When I started 6 months ago VL was 891 000 (not typo) anf cd4 322. Should I be worried? My doctor said I must go back in 6 weeks and if still detectable she will consider changing meds

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Right now, I would not be concerned, and I agree with your doctor's plan. Sometimes with very high viral loads it takes longer than 6 months to become undetectable. You have have had a great response up to this point. You are very close and another few weeks may do the trick.
