I've been on Genvoya a little over a year, and it seems that I've gained weight. I've tried to diet, workout change eating habits. But I'm wondering is it the Genvoya. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Why did Gilead never discuss the likelihood of weight gain when I was in the clinical trial for genvoya?
I can relate on that cos genvoya make me add more weight and it great ,apart from that no other side effects
I’ve gained 60 pounds since starting Genvoya last year. I actually Finally just called my doctor today and told her that it’s the only medication left I have not yet changed do to weight gain. It has to be the reason! I have NEVER had this much weight gain in my life! I convinced her to switch me back to Stribild even though I was having irregular kidney functions. She again told me that it’s probably not the Genvoya but listen I’ve been at a steady weight my whole life (besides pregnancy’s) and I am a fairly healthy person. This medicine is the only thing that has changed! I told her she can continue to tell me that this still fairly new medication on the market doesn’t have weight gain on the listed side effects but I either needed to switch it to a new med anyway or I was stopping my meds completely. I’m not super shallow but my weight is REALLY important to me. I hate looking in mirrors and I do not allow any photos to be taken of me, not even with my children because i am so ashamed.
I reported this incidence of weight gain as a direct consequence if taking Genvoya for more than a year to the FDA. I hope everyobe reports any side effects to the FDA. The phone numbers are at this link: https://www.fda.gov/Safety/ReportaProblem/Consu... Healthy life to all!! Dave
