Hi. Has Anyone Switched From Atripla To Genvoya?

Hi. Has Anyone Switched From Atripla To Genvoya?

I've been on Atripla 11 yrs with good success & little side effects, but concerned it may be hard on my bones, teeth and kidneys. Heard and read that Genvoya may be a better alternative and not as harsh on my body (especially as I get older . . . 61 now) Would appreciate hearing from anyone who has made that switch and what your experience has been like.

I was using Atripla for a while but it had an effect on my kidneys so the doctor switched me to Complera and finally to Odefsey. Each of them pretty mild effects for me but the doctor was playing it as safe as possible with my kidney function.

I first started with Atripla. It used to get stuck in my throat and taste horrible. Then complera. And now Odefsey because a doctor I had said it is better for my kidneys.

They switched me from Genvoya to Biktarvy. Apparently the truvada aspect creates the bone density issues?
