1st month labs
« on: February 19, 2014, 01:36:20 AM »
Hi all,

I wanted to share my first month labs. I am pretty excited that this trend will continue keeping my fingers crossed!

Diagnosed 05/1/2008
12/20/2013 CD4 48 VL 76000
01/01/2014 Atripla (horrible side effects!!!)
01/14/2014 Started Truvada/Tivicay
2/10/2014 CD4 131 VL UD

I'm hoping my CD4 continues to increase so I can get off the dapsone and azithromycin. I'm happy with the news. Feeling great, no side effects, no illnesses

This combo is obviously working as you became UD pretty quickly.  I'd reasonably expect your CD4's to rise above the safe threshold.

Best of luck and take care
