30 days on Atripla: the results are in!
« on: September 19, 2011, 11:54:13 AM »
My previous labs from 06 June 2011 were:

CD4: 298 (19%)

VL:  78,380

I started taking Atripla 01 August and I drew blood on 30 August, here are the results after being on Atripla for 30 days:

CD4: 699 (31%)

VL: 1,938

I'm positively ecstatic!  ;D

I'm due back on 31 October to get another blood draw.

Hi Dan,

I remember when I first joined to the forums, you started to write your Atripla diary on a daily basis. I had a keen interest on that especially being a new member and also wanted to find out what kinds of effects meds would have on you. Great example for anyone who wants to start meds and I am happy it all worked out for you!

Congratulations on your numbers now and even better numbers in the future! Its time to partaay!!

Cheers!

Oh wow! My doctor started recommending treatment right away. My first CD4 came back as being 350. Every patient room has this big poster encouraging to start meds below 500.  ;)

wow, I am happy to see these positive results with Atripla. My doctor has presented 4 options for me to start with and one of them is Atripla. I have decided on Atripla after doing all kinds of reading on it. Seeing these encouraging numbers is giving me some comfort! The idea is to start me on my treatment in a week from now. My numbers are 290 and 100,000vl , I hope I take to it as well as you!

Wow!  That is an impressive set of numbers!  I'm very glad to see that Atripla is working out so well for you.  I started a lil over a week ago myself, and I'll get the next set of labs done the end of October.  Can't wait!  Hoping that my results are as awesome as yours :)
