I have been on Atripla for 3 years, 6 month ago my results came back at VL 26, CD 579 31%, my latest results showed an increase in VL to 59 from 26 should I be worried about upward cliff with VL?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

Your viral loads are very, very low- low enough that even a cold sore (herpes outbreak) could be the cause. Assuming that you've been adherent to your medication (really), I would not be concerned.

Be well, BY
