HIV Treatment

Taking a combination of anti-HIV drugs can stop the virus from reproducing and allow your immune system to recover. The anti-HIV drugs are very powerful so many people experience short term side effects when they first start taking HIV medication. These usually improve after a few weeks.


Combination therapy only works if you take your drugs on time, every time. This adherence is critically important as the HIV can become resistant to the drugs if you miss too many doses.
