Genvoya Isn’t The Miracle I Expected...anyone Else Having A Time With It And Switched To Another ART?

Genvoya Isn’t The Miracle I Expected...anyone Else Having A Time With It And Switched To Another ART?

Here we go...insomnia, lack of appetite, nausea, headache, diarrhea, rash, worsening neuropathy, nightmares nightmares nightmares and this strange thing which makes my eyebrows tingle after I take the dang stuff. My ID Doc wants to switch me and of course she says she has never seen this with one of her patients...lucky me. My question is this: Anyone else have issues with @@Genvoya and have… read more

Great to hear! Every one of us has a different response. My beloved "ex"is on Odefsey and is a champion. On the other hand, it seems I require the complete rx overkill to control my HIV.

Hi, may I please note that you should never go without your HIV meds. Have you looked into Ryan White in your area?

I hear you! We may not have kidneys or livers or any other organs when we get older because of the meds we take, but hey we are still alive! What can we do brother, one day at a time.

I was on Stribilt and switched to Genvoya. I was unable to stay undetectable on Genvoya and went back to Stribilt without issue. (and back to undetectable!) If one has been undetectable and has a high T cell count talki with Dr about Odefsey- it has VERY low amounts of the standard triple rx. The idea is that the lower levels of these powerful chemicals is better for long-term use. There's also Complera, but it requires meal with eash dose.
