Re: Confused on when to start meds? Any suggestions?

yeah that's what I figure. I don't mind starting them right away..I'm hoping I won't react too badly too them. But to know that virus is inside of me doing whatever it wants...I'd sooner be on medication.

I was a little upset after my initial meeting with my doctor. My cd4 cound wasn't available yet and he seemed to think my viral load was really high, but he also seemed to imply that I might want to wait before going on my medication. I was really confused when I left his office. He also said that we'd meet again sometime in April because he was on vacation during March, and we'd go from there. I would like to make a decsion as soon as humanly possible and don't want to wait until he comes back from vacation.

I have a friend who is a good friend of one of the hiv doctors who works at this clinic and I'm going to try and get switched over to them because this doctor doesn't seem to be looking out for my best interests.
Thanks for the info ;-)
Mark
