right med to take at cd4 count of 500
Mar 2, 2013

My cd4 count is 515.what recomended medicine can I start taking

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

Current US treatment guidelines recommend treatment for all people living with HIV, irrespective of CD4 cell count.

There's a range of recommended first-line treatments, all involve the use of 2NRTI medications with a "third" medication. Which medication is right for you depends on a variety of medical and social situations.

I'd suggest looking over our Resource Center on Starting HIV Treatment.

Feel free to write back anytime. BY
