Response from Dr. Henry
If your CD4 count is 640 then generally no clinical urgency to start treatment though getting checked for tuberculosis and other conditions is advised. Starting meds at a high CD4 count may afford some health benefits to you (still being assessed in studies) and greatly decreases the chance that you will transmit HIV to others. General efavirenz + emtricitabine+ tenofovir is often good choice for starting treatment if available. KH
