Does everyone have side effects from treatment?
Jan 1, 2011
I am 10 days into treatment. Taking Truvada/Isentress combo. I have had no, zip, none, side effects. Is this uncommon? How long does it take for side effects to typically occur? I was infected Oct.5, 2010, started treatment Dec 23, 79 days later. I am almost 58 years old. CD4 723; VL 43K
Response from Dr. Henry
For many of the newer regimens a high percentage of patients have little to no side effects. Raltegravir + Truvada has been a very well tolerated regimen with a significant fraction of patients having a side effect profile similar to yours= no major side effects. Good to hear that you are doing well so fast. KH
