If you want to take your ARVs again will the virus be suppressed?
Hi, how are you?
It is great that you want to restart your medication.
How long have you been off medication? and do you remember what ARVs you were taking?
What is your current CD4 count and viral load?
Starting your treatment again is how you will find out if it will still work. Are you able to book a viral load test? If you are, booking one for a few weeks after starting treatment again will let you know if the medication is working?
If it is working, it will be able to suppress the viral load again.
