Everyone is different. Took me almost 18 months and 4 kinds of meds. Started Symtuza, then Biktarvy, then Triumeq, then Triumeq combined with Trogarzo. Last one did the trick and I did Trogarzo infusions for almost a year. Back to just Triumeq but am undetectable now for several 3+ years. Last count, my number was 490.

@A myHIVteam Member, everyone is different. Not everyone's numbers changes dramatically. In 2008, I was diagnosed at 156. Last year, 2023, I hit my highest number ever of 398.

It takes a while period. It took me about 8 months to get to undetectable and over a year to to get to over 200. I kinda stayed in the 300 and 400's for a couple years.

Yes, it can take some time for your CD4 count to increase after starting HIV treatment like Biktarvy. Your initial count was quite low, which indicates a significantly weakened immune system. Since starting treatment, your CD4 count has shown improvement, which is a positive sign. It's important to continue with your prescribed medication and follow up regularly with your healthcare provider to monitor your progress. The gradual increase in CD4 count is a good indicator that the treatment is working, but it can vary from person to person how quickly and to what extent the count improves.
