Anyone Take Dovato
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I have been on Biktarvy since my initial diagnosis June 2022. I’ve been undetectable since September 2022. I have gained a good bit of weight. So my doctor is offering to change me to Dovato. Does anyone have any insight on this drug? Any positives or negatives?

Truvada Two-Step Anyone?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

So it's been some time since I've been on Truvada, however I've noticed that once I started on it many years ago, I have had a rather "shitty" time (and I mean that quite literally). Has anyone else ever had this problem, specifically with Truvada? If so, is there anything you have been able to do with it? Has a change of meds worked? It's better now that I'm on Triumeq instead, however it is basically Truvada and another medication rolled into one pill, so I'm wondering about perhaps changing… read more

Is Anyone Using Dovato
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

Dovato was first approved by the FDA in April 2019 as a complete regimen for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in 2018 due to the TDF component in Atripla. So switched to Biktarvy even though it still had TAF which which also could contribute to osteoporosis but at a 90% reduction compared to TDF. Dovato a two-drug combination that replaces the typical three-drug cocktail doesn't have anything resembling TDF or TAF according to my HIV specialist, who… read more

Is Anyone Here Currently On Dovato But Previously Was On Biktarvy Due To Side Effects Of Biktarvy?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I'm curious if Dovato, a two-drug regimen, is as effective as Biktarvy, a triple-drug regimen!

I started ART in mid-April after diagnosed at the end of March 2023. I'm thinking about switching to Dovato from Biktarvy due to only minor side effect of skin rash, which is manageable with Zyrtec and topical skin care products. Biktarvy has really worked well for me in terms of what it is designed to do. I'm undetectable after 5 weeks, and my CD4 has gone up significantly from 85 to 258 in just 3… read more

Do You Actually Know How To Take Your HIV Medication?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

Have you ever read the pamphlet on your medications?
Some medications you can just take them without food.
Other medications you have to take them with food.
for the medications that you have to take with food do you know what kind of food you have to eat to make that drug work at its maximum?
Did you know that some HIV medications work better when you eat fatty foods?
It's important to read those pamphlets that come with the medications then you know how to actually take your medications.
