I have been taking this medication for 5 years along with reyataz and norivir. Viral load undetectable and cd4 count 1500. Works very well for me.

I just finished one month on this drug after exposure to the blood of an HIV infected person. I hope it worked but will need further blood tests. I felt mild nausea while taking the drug and these symptoms seemed to get a little worse after I finished treatment. HIV is not just a disease of drug users and gays. If a 57 year-old, married, hetrosexual, managomous person can be exposed, anyone can! And thank God for the researchers who have created these drugs.

I have been on combination Truvada and Reyataz for almost three years now. This combination has been much much easier for me to tolerate than my previous with virtually no side effects from it! Regained my undetectable level after three months. Have nothing to say but great things about Truvada and Reyataz combination therapy! This once a day regiment also makes it much easier to handle.

I have been taking this in conjunction with Isentress, for a little over a month & already my viral load is undectecable and my T-cell count is up by 100! A life saver. I am so thankful for this medicine and the wonderful scientists and doctors who care enough to help with this terrible disease!
