Hello and thanks for your post.
I think that your doctor is managing your situation very well. It is indeed time to be on HIV medications, and the regimen that you're taking is a very well tested and recommended one.
With your other symptoms and counts, it's certainly reasonable to be taking Bactrim to prevent PCP and fluconazole to treat your oral yeast infection.
