Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

 

What is the effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy (ART) medications in the management of HIV/AIDS?

Answered by Dr. Sai Say Han

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

 

Its very effective:

1.If you strictly comply with medication and follow up.

2.Our goal is to maintain a normal CD4 count, which represents your bodys defense ability, within or above the normal range.

3.To keep your viral load at an undetectable level.

During follow-up, we routinely monitor your compliance, medication adherence, and any medication side effects. If any side effects occur while taking your ART medication, we typically admit you to the hospital for serious side effects and refer you to an HIV specialist for multidisciplinary team management.

 

Thanks
