First results since starting Atripla
« on: April 21, 2009, 05:38:52 PM »
Just got my results after one month on Atripla. Before starting, CD4 was 404 and VL was 106,000. After one month, my results, fresh out of the mail box, are CD4 549 and VL 230. I am thrilled to put it mildly! I hope the trend continues!

How are you feeling?  Have the side effects gone away?  I started Atripla last Friday, and I'm finding that I keep having a mild head fog if I sit still very long.  As long as I keep moving and stay active, I feel normal.  Kind of strange.  Looking forward to seeing results here in a few weeks.

I have had very few side effects so far. (knock on wood) I usually have some mild dreams, and get a tad dizzy/drunk feeling if I'm still up an hour or two after I take it on some nights. Nothing worse than that at all. I knew I shouldn't expect huge improvement after one month but I must say I am pretty pleased. Especially with my CD4 going from 404 to 549. I'm sure you will do fine with it.
