Hi Trublue85, welcome to the forum. As Hazel said, the new medications are really amazing. Their side effects are very mild or do not exist in most people. So don't worry, as long as the medications are from a trustworthy source, they are most definitely working. After completing the first 4 weeks of treatment, your first monitoring blood test should also confirm that, your virus load at that point should be substantially lower or undetected. Best of luck.
