Reyataz, Kivexa and Norvir..oh my
« on: May 17, 2007, 11:00:36 AM »
Well, as part of a clinical study, I decided to start meds early.

Let me tell you that taking the initial dose was harder than I thought (psychologically)..I looked at it as a point of no return...It was also my first physical introduction to HIV...

I am on Reyataz, Norvir and Kivexa for about three weeks now without any side effects yet..

My question is how long (on average) does it take for VL to start decreasing ?

Anyone else on this combo experience any side effects ?

Hopefully it gets rid of the fatigue and fog

 ??? ??? ???

90% of your viral load goes in the first few days of treatment  It's kinda sudden.

A viral load result of 1,000 or therabouts at 4 weeks and minimal/no side effects is predicitve of long-term success (of the combo)
