Started ably two weeks ago after being in clinical trial for 6 months. Was undetectable after trial but others had count go back up. They said to take the medications to keep virus down. Take 3 pills twice a day and one shot a week. Shot makes me feel like the flu but take the shot before bed and miss out on most of it. Go this Wed. To get labs done . Am hoping for the best!
