Update--1st Labs-Awesome News
« on: July 09, 2010, 03:14:39 PM »
I just got back my first set of labs since taking Atripla on June 6, 2010
The results are as follows:
                                    VL -192  and CD4 526

Prior to taking the meds  my VL was 32,000 and CD4 262.

As you may recall from previous postings, I have no side effects. The only time i feel dizzy is when i take it on a full stomach or when i eat within the 2hr time frame.

Besides, im feeling well and doing great. The other nite i took the pill and i did not go to bed at all. I felt slightly dizzy for about 30mins-45mins and then things went back to normal. I have no trouble sleeping.

Thanks to everyone who gave me advise in previous postings.

That's really good, sounds like the right combo for you.  Good luck with your next labs, and Boze too.
