Response from Dr. Henry

Your husband's response to HIV therapy has been fairly typical and good from what you described. The HIV level has dropped by 99.9% and his CD4 count has gone up significantly--those are the responses that indicate a good response to treatment and support further use of medications with attempts to try and miss no doses.
