Off Complera for 4 month

Question

I have been off complera for 4 months and wondering would I be resistant to the drug now? I also have noticed some swollen Lymph nodes in my neck, and groin area. Should I be concerned?

I was off meds because I lost insurance and was not able to get new unsurance until Jan 1.

Answer

It you were doing OK (suppressed viral levels) while on Complera and then stopped it abruptly due to no insurance status (pitiful for the US having such a complicated lousy insurance system)you likely would not have developed drug resistance since being off meds. Viral levels would be expected to rebound off meds (not due to resistance but to having no active medication in your blood any longer after stopping) and sometimes that is associated with enlargement of lymph nodes.
