I started yesterday to take Truvada and Kaletra first time in life. It was same day as my symptoms started and I had temperature and swollen feeling in lymph nodes. but today, after already taking 6 hours ago this days truvada and 1/2 of kaletra, still temperature is higher and lymph nodes feel all the time larger and larger. I am worried that I am having drug resistant virus or is it normal that the effect takes time? But the good thing is that I don't feel anything from the meds yet, yesterday Kaletra made diarrhea instantly, but today after first eating well even that didn't happen.

It is absolutely normal that this takes some time.  Your body has been through a lot, so be patient (I remember how hard it was - you want to feel better right away!!!)

A few months from now you'll just have a vague memory of how bad you're feeling now.

It's been nearly 7 years for me and my life is back to 100% normal.

Just hang in there and KEEP TAKING YOUR MEDS!!!!!!!

YOU are NOT confirmed HIV.  If your story is accurate, you went to the hospital and got PEP the day after a "risky" contact (in your opinion).  NOBODY gets HIV "symptoms" in a day.  Your thinking about HIV and HIV treatment is all mixed up...  I wont type anymore, I'll report this to moderators who will explain things to you.
