« on: December 15, 2011, 08:23:31 PM »
Hi I am a 30 y.o gay guy from Paris and I was diagnosed Poz a few weeks ago , I have a very low CD4 , 150 and my virus is resistant to many many Meds ... I am kinda worried , I mean I was about to change jobs and life directions and now I am totally lost ... What to do :-/ ?

Ps : look at my questions on Meds forum I just posted too , it's about the med combination which I find a bit strange that my doctor wants me to take

Sorry for being so paranoid , this is how I feel since 3 weeks !!

When I was diagnosed, I found out I had a very drug resistant strain, it's in my signature on my profile of which ones.  Your doctor will know what to do, I take intelence, viread, and combivir and I'm doing great with very little side effects.  Just have to make sure to stick with it. Don't miss any doses!!  Intelence i have to be careful with because I am resistant to every other drug in that class. You will be fine dude!!!!!!!!!
