Has Any One Heard Of Side Effects From ODEFSY HIV MEDS? PLEASE LOOKING FOR MEDICAL ADVICE?

I've been taking it for a few months now. At first it caused a lot of lethargy and feelings of tiredness. Having HIV is causing me to have SO MUCH ANXIETY AND INCREDIBLE SADNESS. Could really use friend and a HUG.😥😥😥😥😥

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. Here we go...insomnia, lack of appetite, nausea, headache, diarrhea, rash, worsening neuropathy, nightmares nightmares nightmares and this strange thing which makes my eyebrows tingle after I take the dang stuff. My ID Doc wants to switch me and of course she says she has never seen this with one of her patients...lucky me. My question is this: Anyone else have issues with @@Genvoya and have… read more

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.

Eating Food And Taking Medication.

Eating Food And Taking Medication.

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
