I was diagnosed March/April 2014. Starting taking Stribild within 2 weeks. I had a CD4 of 204 and 5-days into takign meds a VL of 4,000. Just had my 6 month check up and VL >1 and CD4 of 298 already. Ni side effects after some minor things the first 2 weeks (my body healing). I take one every morning and it has made this process much easier to deal with and manage.
