At what point should he start taking them, so they wait until his T-Cell count drops and he does get AIDS
? He has a friend with the disease and she had HIV
for 11 years and just recently started medication when she got sick and went to the hospital and her T-Cell count was significantly lower. Are there a lot of bad side affects to the medications? I also read that the average life expectancy is 24 years after infection, is this true.
