The debate has gone on and on about that topic. So far there's no proof that starting medicine early provides any particular benefit..unless you were diagnosed near the point in time when you truly need them. On the other hand, some theorize that by starting treatment early, it provides the body with an opportunity to preserve T-cells and develop a stronger immunity to the virus.

Honestly...neither approach has ever successfully been proven better than the other.
