Starting Complera
      04/07/13 07:20 PM

I started Complera on 4/23/13. My recent bloodwork showed my CD4 had dropped to 591 (previously was 748) and my viral load had increased from 8,000 to 18,000. It has now been two weeks since I started taking Complera. I have had only couple of side effects from the medication. I had an issue with my inner ear fluttering for a few days but that subsided. I have also had a little bit of nausea...but it has been lessening. No other side effects to report which has helped alleviate my worries. I have my follow up bloodwork in a few weeks. Let's hope the Complera does what it is supposed to do. I will keep you posted. I wanted to add this post to let others know how it has been for me in case they are considering taking Complera. At this point I would recommend it. The only downside of this medication is that you must take it with a meal of at least 400 calories.
