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?

Any advice?

@A myHIVteam Member. The drugs are improving as well. Other than cancer which is really many diseases, there is a greater variety in HIV medications than for any other condition. And new types of… read more

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

Bloodwork Results On Dovato

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I usually have bloodwork every 6 months as I have been stable and undetectable on my medications for many years now. My last bloodwork showed a small uptick in my viral load - still undetectable but a small increase. My doctor said that it may be that the Dovato is no longer working as well as it should since it only contains 2 antivirals instead of 3 as all other HIV meds do. Has anyone else had this same experience while taking Dovato - and did you have to change meds?

A myHIVteam Member

I just had a blip 2 labs ago showing I was detectable but viral load still low. That day when I got my labs I was really sick, so sick I should have stayed home. But it was the only day I had… 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

A myHIVteam Member

I don't remember if I answered this already, but I am using Dovato. Three or four years and counting. The main reason for the switch was due to my osteoporosis at such a young age, as well as a better… read more

Patient Advocate Foundation...

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

Received snail mail the other day; April 1 specifically. It is thick envelope from some place called Patient Advocate Foundation and in bold print "Co-Pay Relief". They are from Hampton VA.

There are phone numbers to call and most likely I will. But this also could be an April fools scam. Has anyone else here heard of this outfit?

Thanks

A myHIVteam Member

Wise choice @A myHIVteam Member. I doubt you will have any trouble. Whatever damage occurred with my kidneys, occurred long before I started Biktarvy. Good Luck 🍀👍 ❤️
