I have been start my medication treatment for 6 months....if i take my pill regularly on time... how long i still can alive? Your answer is very important for me. Sorry for my English not so good.

Response from Dr. Henry

If a patient is taking an effective combination of HIV meds (usually 3 at a time) and not missing any doses they can live for a very long time. I have had patients who are doing well after 10 years of effective therapy with no end in sight. I expect some patients will live 20-30+ years so we have to worry about cancer,liver disease, heart diseae, car accidents, etc now that patient are doing well on treatment. KH

what is revivo?
Preventive/Therapeutic Vaccine
