Does Anyone Have A Picture And/or List Of A HIV "Cocktail" From The 90's?

Does Anyone Have A Picture And/or List Of A HIV "Cocktail" From The 90's?

I am trying to wrap my head around what a real cocktail was in the past. When I received my HIV diagnoses in 2012 doctors put me on Atripla, a 3-in-1 pill, that very same day. I have not seen any TV show or movie explain what past cocktails where. In the movie Rent, they say "AZT TIME" but never really explain if that is a three times a day thing or 15 times a day thing. Even in the movie Dallas Buyers Club, they go through a list of the medicine but not dosages or dosing schedule. I believe… read more

@A myHIVteam Member is correct there were no cocktails just AZT of which I never partook of thankfully because of my long denial after diagnosis. By the time I started getting sick, there were other… read more

How Do You Feel About This?

How Do You Feel About This?

So, i was reading this article (which now i cant find to attach) and i found this information to be interesting and not fully accurate. Also, i do not like the wording “THE FINAL STAGE”. This is very scary word play and very offsetting. What are your thoughts?

AIDS is the final stage

Controlling HIV with medications is crucial to both maintaining quality of life and helping prevent progression of the disease. Stage 3 HIV, also known as AIDS, develops when HIV has significantly weakened the… read more

Coordinating Long Term Survivors:

Coordinating Long Term Survivors:

I was diagnosed in 1987 living half my life with HIV. I am interested in connecting with people who are also Long Term Survivors. I have searched the site and have found quite a few. We are so few and far between it has been hard to find others who have been through the journey we have experienced. Having lost so many friends in the 80 's and 90's plus being diagnosed myself has made me feel survivors guilt and PTSD. Looking for others who have experienced some of the same and like to set… read more

Has Anybody Experienced Having Weak Or Really Bad Teeth Problems?

Has Anybody Experienced Having Weak Or Really Bad Teeth Problems?

I brush my teeth at least 3X a day. 2 years ago I started taking Intelence. I've noticed that my teeth have gotten considerably weak and some teeth have cracked or partially broken. I fear I will have to start wearing dentures. I am convinced that it's the medication. I am taking Intelence and Epzicon now and have been having a problem with weak and sensitive teeth. 3 have broken and 2 other have chipped. I don't know what to do...I don't have regular medical insurance. I've got… read more
