Is Anyone Using Dovato

Is Anyone Using Dovato

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

Has Anyone Taking Biktarvy Experienced Significant Weight Gain?

Has Anyone Taking Biktarvy Experienced Significant Weight Gain?

I was diagnosed HIV positive 8 months ago and started on Biktarvy. My HIV was VERY advanced and the Biktarvy has helped immensely. BUT I’ve gained 24 pounds so far. I’m a 5’2” female so that’s up 2 clothing sizes. And I wasn’t underweight before. (Seems I experienced every symptom of late stage HIV except wasting.) I have a ton of fairly expensive clothing that I can’t wear, my joints ache from the extra weight, and I hate looking in the mirror in my new “fat clothes”. But my doctor doesn’t… read more
