Medications: If someone starts treatment for HIV before their CD4 count gets too low, takes the medications consistently, and keeps their HIV viral load undetectable, they should have a relatively normal lifespan. The CD4 count will also increase. It is so important to find a regimen that fits your lifestyle so you can take it (or a future, even better one) for the rest of your life.
