Genvoya Isn’t The Miracle I Expected...anyone Else Having A Time With It And Switched To Another ART?

Well unfortunately @@Genvoya is not what I expected. I have every side effect listed plus a few more.

Is anyone here on Odefsey? If yes, what types of side effects are you having? I have WAY more side effects on this than I did on Complera...

Hi. Has Anyone Switched From Atripla To Genvoya?

Hi. Has Anyone Switched From Atripla To Genvoya?

I've been on Atripla 11 yrs with good success & little side effects, but concerned it may be hard on my bones, teeth and kidneys. Heard and read that Genvoya may be a better alternative and not as harsh on my body (especially as I get older . . . 61 now) Would appreciate hearing from anyone who has made that switch and what your experience has been like.

Odefsey

Hello, I'd like to know if Odefsey can be used as "prevention" or is only prescribed to persons with hiv ?

Thank you for the answer

The only drug that has been approved for use in PrEP is Truvada. There are no other drugs that have been approved for use prescription exposure.
