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. It's never "fair" it just IS. I grew up in NYC in the '80's and most of my friends died. So, every day is a miracle.

I have been on @Genvoya for over well over a year. I was given it because it so wont make my depression worse than what is. However I have gained weight and it still creeping up. Also my dreams are so realistic I think they have happened, which is bizarre. I also get headaches, high bloody pressure and joint pains that happen at any time and for no reason. I do take mine in the morning with food and by 3pm I can get very sleepy. I also get stomach pains not long after taking it but it does pass. thought I would share my experiences on it so far.
