« on: February 14, 2014, 10:26:21 PM »
First 30 days on Stribild, after being diagnosed for a year and on no meds..

January 10, 2013
CD4    414
VL      33,000

February 12, 2013
CD4    519
VL      9,015

I take my meds at the same time each evening(+/- 1 hour), with a meal

Only side effects was 2 minor bouts of diarrhea, and heck, that could of been from changing my juice regimen, or some food.

Feel great and looking forward to an UD VL load soon.

Congratulations on the good numbers . I bet you will be undetectable in a week or two at most . There is a real peace of mind when you start meds and see the good numbers start to come in, that's when it hits you that I'm going to be ok .

Thanks Jeff
I must admit, my absolute ignorance of HIV and meds, when I was first diagnosed with HIV, still bothers me. But, better late than never.

That being said, when I told my doctor I was ready for meds, my whole outlook towards my health and HIV changed.
