What Is Your Advice On Alcohol?

What Is Your Advice On Alcohol?

I know that alcohol weakens HIV medication strength but what happens if I get really wasted just once? Will that take a toll on my body/body’s defense system, also could my body go back to how it is before drinking (this is purely hypothetical but i really just want to feel that again)?

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

Are Integrase Inhibitors Less Toxic With Less Side Effects Than PI's? (Tivicay Vs. Prezista/Norvir)

Are Integrase Inhibitors Less Toxic With Less Side Effects Than PI's? (Tivicay Vs. Prezista/Norvir)

When I was diagnosed with AIDS in 2011 I just let the Dr's tell me what to do, and took the pills and chose to ignore my disease mainly because it was controlling my life, making me depressed every minute. That became a habit and being vigilant with my meds, my numbers became great, but I just stayed out of the "loop" as far as medicine was concerned and never changed anything. Integrase Inhibitors didn't even exist back in 2011, but now that I want to get rid of Truvada because of it's kidney… read more

Given The Opportunity, Would You Be Willing To Volunteer In A Clinical Trial For An HIV/AIDS Cure?

Given The Opportunity, Would You Be Willing To Volunteer In A Clinical Trial For An HIV/AIDS Cure?

Clinical trials are administered in various ways. They can be using medication, intravenously, transfusion, stem cell replacemen etc....There is no cost incurred to the patient and a reimbursement for the day is usually allotted. All expenses are usually covered by the administrating practice. Patients must meet the qualifications of the clinical trial. At-risk patients will not qualify for these trials. The patients' health is number one in these trials and is monitored very closely. ❤️

I definitely would participate. Research needs volunteers. It's the only way to get new treatments approved.

Anyone On Prezista, Norvir And Descovy?

Anyone On Prezista, Norvir And Descovy?

I am currently taking Prezista, Norvir and Truvada, but I want to get off the Truvada due to it's serious effects on Kidney's and bone density. I have read there is a safer "version" of Truvada called Descovy. I have a very resistant strain, when I was originally diagnosed in 2011 I had only 24 cd4 count, and the gene/pheotype test at that time showed I was resistant to most all the meds except the combo of Prezista, Norvir and Truvada which I have taken every day since. My Dr told me I could… read more

Does Your State ADAP Plan For Low Income Residents Allow A 90-day Supply Of HIV Medications?

Does Your State ADAP Plan For Low Income Residents Allow A 90-day Supply Of HIV Medications?

I've been getting HIV drug assistance, HDAP from the Hawaii State Department of Health since 2014. Until just recently they only allowed a 30-day supply; but after a discussion with the Lead Supervisor of HDAP this past Monday he said depending on what's allowed by one's insurance they will now pay for a 90-day supply; even my case worker didn't know that, so the change in policy must be very new. To put pressure on insurance companies he's asking for doctors to order 90-day supplies, which… read more
