I Switched From Biktavy To Cabenuva Injection And Now I’m Detectable And Cd4 Low🤦🏽‍♀️
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I was on Biktavy for 2 years and never missed a doze. My CD4 was 450, undetectable, then I switched to Cabanuva for a 2-month injection. After 6 months, my CD4 count has dropped to 314, and I am detectable again. I'm very upset and stressed right now.  It seems like the Cabenuve 2-month injection is not working for me, despite the more than 50 side effects. I went back to Biktavy; it's been 2 weeks.

Antiretroviral Therapy
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

When I see my GP on January 11th I would like to know what type of antiretroviral medication is a good one that doesn’t have the side effect of trouble sleeping. Because on the injections, they have that side effect, it also causes depression and anxiety. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A myHIVteam Member

Indeed @A myHIVteam Member what would be the point. My inclination would be Biktarvy myself if I could afford it.
