Hello and thanks for posting from India.
The dose of HIV medication isn't based on your health, it's based on how bodies metabolize the medications.
As such, it's great to hear that you're making a very good recovery from perilously low CD4 counts and impaired immune system health. It is not recommended at all that you reduce the dose of your medications.
Be well, BY
