Meds, Mind, Body & Benefits > Questions About Treatment & Side Effects

Newly Diagnosed and Started Meds was that right???

<< < (2/2)

Dear MC,

My doctor  perscribed my meds on the same day of my first set of labs.  So she didnt even know the results yet.  I'm going again next week for my  2nd  viral load  and CD counts.  I dont know what to expect.  but i hope they are better than the first.  Sometimes the meds make me feel weird  but she says that most of the side effects will be gone after six weeks.  I'm almost at 4 weeks of med therapy.   

Hugs to you buddy.  Others have said  to start meds is the decision of you and your  Dr.  but for some reason mine started me right away.  She must have thought my labs were lower than what they were   I dont know.
