6 months on therapy

Dear Dr. Handsfield,

I have started with antiretroviral therapy in April this year after my cd4+ further declined to 480 and viral load remained very high at 800,000 even after 6 months after exposure. I am currently on combination of Truvada, Prezista and Norvir which I take regularly every 24 hours. I feel much better than before meds, from time to time I have soar throat, nothing serious though. I didnt notice any significant side effects except temporary diarrhoea. After 2 months of therapy CD4+ stood at 473 (18,0%)) but VL decreased to 800. Then, my recent results (oct 13) showed this: VL further decreased to 144 but CD4+ remained at 473 (17,9%). What do you think of my results? VL is decreasing but I am concerned about CD4 +. I see no improvement there. Could you please help and give me your opinion what could be wrong? Thank you very much.

Regards,

Tomas
