I am undetectable via 1/2 dosages of Viramune
« on: August 14, 2008, 01:43:40 AM »

http://aidsmeds.com/articles/1667_14879.shtml

Based on the above, my clinic offered that I try Viramune at 1/2 daily dosage for a month rather than 2 weeks.  After I month, I went on the full daily dosage.

Today I am happy to report that I am undetectable after using Viramune at 1/2 the daily dosage for one month (plus Truvada, of course).

I never had a side effect beyond some mild, and brief, rash.  I chose to start with Viramune/Truvada instead of Atripla because of all the neurological wackiness of Atripla.  I have been pretty depressed lately and I didn't want to make things worse.

That's great news Darwin!  Like you, I was very worried about the psychological side effects that Sustiva can cause, and so I waited to start meds until I could enroll in a Viramune clinical trial, and I've been really pleased with this regimen so far.  Absolutely no side effects for me, and I'm undetectable and my CD4 is climbing nicely.  Hope hings continue to go well for you.
