well it has only been one week with the medication and so far so good. i had a little naseau and some stomach pain but no more than i usually have so it was no big deal. i go for my first blood test tomorrow to check on effectiveness that is why there is no rating yet but i will let you know tomorrow. for the most part though i feel pretty good with this than i did with other hiv meds
