Happy with my new lab results!
« on: January 07, 2014, 11:13:59 AM »
Just about six months ago i was diagnosed & wondering about my future.
Today, after just a month of Eviplera (Complera) i got back my lab results and...happily i went down from VL over 50.000 to just about 150...and my CD4 rose above 500!!
I feel very confident and thankful to my docs and my therapy, which has not given any side effect at all...
So i just wanted to share it with you and inspiring those who are afraid about starting HAART.
Happy new year!
You need coolin', baby, I'm not foolin',
I'm gonna send you back to schoolin',
Way down inside honey, you need it,
I'm gonna give you my love,
I'm gonna give you my love.

That's a very good news! Congrats

I have a doc visit coming up and depending on the result, he might run few meds by me. Complera is in one of my lists. I know I can get from somewhere else, just out of curiosity, did you find it okay, no side effects/ issues using complera?

It a great jump ( the other way:)), that must make your feel good. I am happy for you.
