Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting from India.

It's good to learn of your improved health and that our site has been of value to you.

Since you started on your HIV medications with such a severely low CD4 count, I would not recommend discontinuation of your medications at any time. Once stopped, your CD4 count would likely plummet back to dangerous levels.

I hope that helps and be well. BY

Just how good of a drug is selzentry?
Low risk to complete all 28 days?
