If r viral load goes undetectable, never, if it never goes that low n hovers at 250+, soon for the efavirenz, in 6 months to 2 yrs for for Combivir.

Undetectable = under 50 copies viral load at present.  If you can, get yr doc to ask for an unltrsensitive vira load test that measures this far down, they's common now.  Under 400: prob okay. It can take a while to get undetectable so don't fret eh?

Hey Latin,

Good potent combo, yes.

Would be a good idea for you/doc to watch for signs of lipo on your appointments. Could be years or never, don't get alarmed at my post.

Lipo comes from the azt in combivir fyi.
