Just started my treatment today.

Hey Guys, well I saw my doctor yesterday and after my second blood test results she decided to start me on medication. I was infected in early December 2012 and was diagnosed February 20th with an initial cd4 of 420 and a viral load of 150,000. This time my cd4 was 400 and my viral load was 500,000. I guess this is somehat common after the initial infection.

The doctor started me on Isentress and Kivexa, which is a 2 pill a day regime. She said that will help my viral load go down pretty quickly and then after that I could switch to a one pill a day treatment if I like.

Anyway, so far so good. I took my first pill a few hours ago and never really noticed any side effects. I guess time will tell.

Has anyone here ever taken any of these medications? If so, maybe you could let me know how they work for you?
Thanks!
Mark
