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

For Those Of Us Suffering From Lipoatrophy And/or Lipodystrophy:
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

Many feel the major culprits for Lipoatrophy, or loss of fullness in face. limbs, and rear, were the drugs AZT and Zerit. More are prone to Lipodystrophy, or visceral fat accumulation in your belly making it look bigger or fat accumulation in fat in upper back, who took Crixivan early on.

Has Anybody Experienced Having Weak Or Really Bad Teeth Problems?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

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

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.

A myHIVteam Member

I take biktarvy at midnight every night with food. I’m a night owl so I’m always up at that time.i like taking it at night so if I have side effects I’m sleeping lol.

What Medicine Do You Take?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I have no idea why or how but according to my viral load test my VL went from undetectable to 93. I have never missed my biktarvy. None of it makes sense.

My doctor mentioned possibly switching from biktarvy to something else to see if another medication would “jump start” my cd4. Now she may really want to since my VL is increasing.

A myHIVteam Member

Blips occur.I have had it happen and on retest was undetectable.
