Response from Dr. Henry
Treatment interruption can lead to an increase in serious clinical problems (both AIDS and non-AIDS related) so has to be done in a very thoughtful manner. Stopping treatment may be safer in persons who never had a CD4 count < 350 cells/mm3. If there is serious drug toxicity then stopping treatment or often (preferably) switching treatment is considered. I would discuss further with your HIV provider. KH
