Question

Can a person restart ARVs?

I’ve been off meds for 3 months, can I restart?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

The simply answer is yes. Yes, you can restart meds, and its great to hear that you want to.

If its possible you should book an appointment to see your doctor. Ideally they should check your viral load as well as your CD4 count. Depending on where you are your doctor may also run some resistance tests. These are used to make sure that you’re still ok to take the ARVs that you used to take.
