What Are Some Side Effects You’ve Experienced Switching To Cabenuva?

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I’ve been on Genvoya (initially Stribild, then to Genvoya) since 2014 and my Doc gave me the ok to start Cabenuva. Yay 😀 I’m not opposed to pills or shots but I’m curious about the side effects of new meds as well as potential drug interactions. What are some side effects you've experienced so far on Cabenuva?

A myHIVteam Member

Try Oscar Insurance, they cover it (Cabanuva)No questions asked. They listed it on their website too. Other Insurance will give you a run around, also get copay coupon from ViiV.

What Are The Side Affects You Experienced Using Cabanuva???

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

So I will be starting this regimen soon and I've heard about joint pain as well as sight injection pain so I was wondering what is your experiences?

A myHIVteam Member

I have to say my HIV Professor doesnt think Cabanuvar would work in my particular case due to the high volume of drug resistant mutations that I have. I dont mind carrying on with my 4 x daily… read more

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. I plan on getting bloodwork after 1 month to see if there's any change. The problem with Biktavy… read more

If A Twice YEARLY (every 6 Months) Treatment Was Available, Would You Take It?

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

Now that in the past 2 years the United States has went from a monthly shot to bimonthly shot for HIV treatment, long after Europe approved it, would you take a biyearly shot
As I always mention, Europe is ALWAYS ahead of the United States in HIV care. Europe has now approved a biyearly (every 6 months) HIV treatment. Right now, it is only available for people who have no other options because of medication resistance. Again, as usual, Europe is leading the way in HIV care. This is why I follow… read more

Newest Treatment Coming Soon

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I’ve read that those of us on once daily ARVs might be a thing of the past in the very near future. Many studies are showing real promise that injectables are going to be the new gold standard treatment.we have cabanuva currently but from what I’m understanding soon there will be more injections options where one injection a month is all that’s needed. I’m on the fence on whether I like this option. Taking 1 pill a day is not a big deal but it’s a reminder every day that you have this disease… read more

Is Anyone Taking Cabenuva?

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

My health insurance and adap here in Michigan will not pay for this bi-monthly drug. Has anyone else had this issue with their health insurance and adap? If so, how are you getting it covered?

A myHIVteam Member

@A myHIVteam Member It's funny I'm positive from taking the shot between both cheeks. Now they have meds to fix it with a shot in each cheek.
