Starting Medication
      03/28/07 07:12 AM

Hello everyone I am HIV positive for over two years now but still not taking any meds when I was first tested my CD4 is 878 VL of 140,000 my doctor waited for a little bit after three months my CD4 is around 750 and VL 54,000 without taking any meds my doctor suggest that I have to be tested again after 6 months and fter 6 months my CD4 is still high around 800 again and my VL went high around 71,000 my test results been almost the same for over two years and I started feeling really depressed and I have panic attacks which I have it before and I stop medicating because I don't like the side effect and I noticed that I forget things a lot and even sometimes tried to remember the word I want to say and that scares me my doctor suggest that I have to start medication because it might be the cause of HIV even though my CD4 is high but my VL didn't go down, so if someone here have the same experience do you think I need to take medication even though at this high CD4? thank you.. by the way this is my latest counts: CD4 780 VL 71,000
