Has Anybody Experienced Having Weak Or Really Bad Teeth Problems?

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

UPDATE....It was the Gabapentin. I was also taking Gabapentin but I stopped taking them when I read an article linking them to tooth decay and other problems. My body went through very painful muscle spasms (withdrawal symptom) for a few days after I stopped taking them. I will soon be getting dental implants to replace the teeth I lost

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… read more

There are offices that do take Medicaid & Medicare. I'm on that insurance and get regular checkups for my teeth. I had to research and look a for along time.

How Do You Feel About This?

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

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

DId You Live In A Different Country, State, Or County From Where You Live Now?

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

If so, how is HIV care differently where you are now, compared to where you were? This can be anything from medical care to housing, food or transportation.

Coordinating Long Term Survivors:

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

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

1985 & diagnosed "full blown" 1990 although they don't use that term anymore! Thank goodness! I read earlier on this site a comment about "long term" & the difficulties we face. We do have different… read more

Eating Food And Taking Medication.

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

Ok so this could be a continuum of the last question I posted about sun exposure. But I will just make a different post. Since this is on my mind now (because I JUST DID IT), I had another question about how to take your medication
A lot of the HIV pills you must take with food. What if you are in a position to where you can't eat but must take your pill? Do you take your pill without eating? Do you find a quick bite to eat somewhere or somehow
I had an early supper and ate heavy. Now that it… read more

A myHIVteam Member

I take it regardless if I have food with me or not but I try and make sure I do eat something within an hour of taking my med. Only 1 of the 4 meds I take for HIV suggests taking it with food. I have… read more
