Common Questions and Answers about Atripla results

atripla

CD4 340; CD4% 28%; Viral Load 44000. My test results on May 17/10: CD4 243; CD4% 22%; Viral Load ?? My HIV doctor has started me on Atripla and assures me that my counts will go up once I've started my treatment regimen. I have been taking Atripla since Friday and have had absolutely no side-effects, not even the Vivid Dreams that I was so looking forward to. Does it take some time before side-effects are felt, pleasant or unpleasant?
Hey, if I have a bad HIV results, will it my status. In addition, I have a white pimple that is on my penis and has not yet to go away , pluse I have rash on my chest, that is there for almost 3 weeks now. I am scared. Please give me your inpute on the status.
I went to my primary Dr, he gave me an Elisa, that came up negative this week. Before recieving the results, I took an expired home test that came up positive. I took that to a specialist who saw the test, looked me over and gave me Atripla to start to be safe. She also sent me off for more tests, elisa and others. I also now took a PCR DNA thats not back yet. I went to a free clinic that gave me a rapid test that came up negative.
I wanted to know my risk to exposure and that shout tested negative for STI and HIV two days later as preliminary results and enrolled for PEP atripla pills. I want to know my risk for exposure and that should I stop the PEP or continue with it and that assuming I'm infected can I transmit the virus to another person if I had unprotected sex.
Feb 8th morning met my primary physician and since was a bit insistent, the physician consulted a specialist and then decided to give a regiment of Atripla for atleast 30 days (he told me to keep taking it until the results are negative 6 weeks from now). I have insurance and picked up the supply today. 1. After coming home with Atripla and reading on the internet about its side effects, I am developing cold feet on whether to take the medicine or not.
The bottom line is that our study showed that use of an experimental booster [cobicistat] in this regimen that includes an experiment integrase inhibitor [elivitegravir] achieved similar results to Atripla with improved tolerability.” Dr Elion went on to explain that the experimenta1 booster cobicistat, unlike ritonavir, was amenable to coformulation with other antiretroviral drugs.
What would you advise regarding the Atripla? Would you guide me to continue or discontinue it? 3. What impact could the Atripla have on the different HIV tests - PCR vs. antibody? 4. Also what about my risk for having contracted HSV2 and what should I do in terms of testing for that? Could the Atripla confound that testing? Thank you very much.
She gave me an Elisa HIV fulll STD panel Hep ABC, Epstein Barr test and a prescription for Atripla didnt fill til after the test. All tests came up negative, Took Atripla for 5 days and when neg test I stopped. I took a DNA PCR HIV test at time, negative but after 5 days of Atripla. My Epstein Barr was active high so possible. But not new or acute infection. Symptoms now have continued for a month, very severe, very painful. Going to take my 2 month Elisa and DNA test next week 7/17.
I had neuro syphilis (rash, lost some hearing stage 2 i believe it was) about 2 years ago and went on atripla at that time. There was a few months (from December 2012 until about June 2013) i was off the meds due to my insurance/cost etc. Back in October 2012 i had all my blood was negative for syphilis and all numbers were great.
I find this interesting because if he truly had HepB,wouldn't the doctor have given him something else considering that something in Atripla exacerbates HepB to the point of liver failure?)I do not believe he has HIV,even the most recent tests were considered FP/WBi by the lab...
I went 30 hrs after my exposure to the hospital and they gave me PEP (1 combivir and 2 kaletra twice per day) coming back to my country after 3 days i forgot the pills that i bought in switzerland and the doctor here suggested i take 1 atripla pill instead every night !!! do you think this is feasible ( what is your assessment to the situation?!

,based on the info he gave me on symptoms of his illness and the questionable test results due to having a poss. autoimmune disease as well as being over-vaccinated for 14yrs by the military.I insisted he be retested after I put him on a high-fiber diet (only) and took him off Atripla.After not taking Atripla for approx. 3mths his VL went down by 300,which has confused his "doctor".MY QUESTION: What are the similarities/differences between Anti-HIV1,0.2+p24-Ag Abbott,4.Genaratio(pos.

Can i take theses negative results as conclusive results or do i need further testing?
He has spoken with 2 different doctors and they both agree on the newer technique of starting meds immediately. They want him to begin Atripla right now while his CD4s are still so high. I just wanted to know, what is your opinion on this? Do you know if the side effects of Atripla are too great for him to begin so soon? Thanks for your time. Anyone else who has knowledge on this it would be greatly appreciated, and if I need to post in a different forum, sorry. I will.
Thanks so much for looking at my question. My other results are HepB surface antigen negative HepB surface antibody negative HepB core Ab positive 2.4x10 (to the power of one) viral loads negative I am on atripla I asked my consultant if my chronic HepB infection (which has had undetectable HepB DNA for nearly 3 years) had reactivated and he said its unlikely, but I have read some sources on the internet that it is possible?
1) Two days of PEP would have no effect on HIV test results. Your negative results -- all of them -- are reliable. 2) Testing at 3 months applies when only the antibody tests are done. Even there, with the standard (3rd generation) tests, 6 weeks in fact is sufficient. With combination tests like you had, 4 weeks is conclusive. 3,4) There are NO medications or health problems known to interfere with HIV testing. That's an urban myth.
My ELISA came back negative but my P24 had a positive reation but was considered 'indeterminate'. I have since had another series of blood tests and am waiting for the results. I am going insane with worry while I wait. 1- Can someone please tell me why I have shown a positive reaction in my P24 test even though I was protected (unless it broke of course)? 2 - If I was sick with another type of virus at the time, could this throw out or confuse the P24 test? Extremely worried!
I got tested a week ago, and had an appointment Friday to discuss the results. but instead they called me in today. they told me i was positive, i said are you sure and the doctor replied "we even double checked it ".
Tenofovir (Viread, also in the Truvada, Atripla, Complera, and Stribild coformulations) is among the most widely used antiretroviral drugs, as it is highly effective and generally regarded as safe and well-tolerated. However, it can cause kidney toxicity in susceptible individuals and is associated with bone loss that begins soon after starting treatment.
http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/18559 - bottom of the page I really just need to talk about some of this but I don't want to hurt friends and family by expressing just how profoundly distressed I am. I have a feeling that I'm not going to be around a whole lot longer.
I am very recently HIV positive and after worrying for 4 weeks I got the results. Strangely enough I was anticipating them (three weeks of fever + sore throat) so when they came I almost was relieved that finally there is a certainty that I will die younger. I am 30, male. Results confirmed by ELISA (two times) and Western blot. 100% certain. I have some questions and I will very much appreciate your honest, candid answer on all of them.

Never go back to that Dr again, he has no business giving you that medication.
But even though receptive anal sex with an infected partner is the highest risk sexual practice there is, on average only about 1 in 200 such exposures results in HIV infection. And it remains highly probable your partner doesn't have HIV. If we assume a 1% chance your partner had HIV despite his belief he does not, then the calculated odds you would catch HIV come to 1 in 20,000 (0.05 x 0.01 = 0.0005).
You have tested with different tests at times when the results are conclusive and each result was negative. You need to believe the results. Please note that while the symptoms you describe are not worrisome for HIV, even if they were, I would point out that all of the symptoms of HIV are non-specific and can occur as a result of numerous processes other than HIV. . I worry that you have been trolling the internet looking for evidence that your problems might be due to HIV.
Hi Teak, I was just browsing the last few questions and I came across your news regarding your results. I'm delighted that your CD4 count is up and that you're undetectable. It must be a relief to be back on Atripla and I hope daily that your numbers keep improving. You are such a comfort to so many on this forum and others, and you've given me nothing but support during my (ongoing!) ww hell. Your strength and bravery fills me with respect and envy.
After one month of taking the ATRIPLA my test results have come back and my Viral Load has went undetectable, and my CD4 went up to 400. Starting in the beginning of March I started having sever fatigue, flushed cheeks, and my spine continue to effect me. I feel like I am running fevers but everytime I take my temperature it stays in the 98.6-98.9 range. I am having this sever back pain which starts from my lower back up to the upper back and into my head.
