HIV/AIDS Living With board

Actually, I've been feeling pretty good. The doctor changed me to Rayataz and Truvada along with Norvir (4 pills, once a day). There is some gastric distress with these meds that I have never experienced before but I can take a Zantac either ten hours before or ten hours after the meds. So, I take the Zantac sometime close to 8 p.m. (I take the meds at 6 a.m. before I leave for work) and then eat white bread during the day and if I wake up at night. Viral load remains undetectable and T-cell was at 244 back in August. I've had a bit of a cold and am scheduled to have blood drawn this week and follow-up with dr next week. Any thoughts on delaying the blood draw until I am asymptomatic from the cold?

I would love to have a couple of beers with you... Are you doing OK? I can't tell you how much you continue to teach. You remain an inspiration and a beacon. I am blessed by your presence...chris
