Was Anything Decided If Particular HIV Meds Are Beneficial Against Covid?

Was Anything Decided If Particular HIV Meds Are Beneficial Against Covid?

This topic was discussed during the course of the virus. Wondered if there ever was any scientific evidence to support it, and what HIV meds. I've been completely vaccinated and had my booster. But now seeing another Covid variant emerging out of South Africa and spreading fast to border countries, I figure we need all the protection we can get as immune compromised individuals.

I would be sure and ask your doctor. I currently take two pills a day. My doctor said I could miss up to a week with no worries. That said, I have never done that, but it's still good to know if I… read more

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

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

Pancreatitis

Pancreatitis

I have had two attacks of pancreatitis due to hiv meds, have anyone else had this problem. The meds I was taking truvada in 2017 and precobix in 2020.

A myHIVteam Member said:

I suspect that my pancreatitis has been caused by Truvada and Nevirapene. How do you know that your meds were the cause and not other things like eg alcohol?

Genvoya

Genvoya

My neuropathy has calmed down from back in the day of all the "D" meds that triggered it in the first place. I will be switching to this med as soon as the Atripla runs out

A myHIVteam Member said:

Genvoya did help with the neuropathy, but it has killed my heart so I’m switching to Prezcobix. In my research I am finding that Emtricitabine is likely the culprit and unfortunately for me it’s in… read more

Switching From Genvoya To Prezcobix And Tivicay

Switching From Genvoya To Prezcobix And Tivicay

Hey all! I have been on Genvoya since my diagnosis for more than a year. It seemed to do the job but I had some pretty intense side affects, namely depression diarrhea, muscle and joint soreness. So my doctor just switched me to Prezcobix and Tivicay and I'm just starting them today.

Can anyone tell me your experiences with these 2 drugs combined? Even if it's negative I'd like feedback so I know what to expect. Any feedback is appreciated.

A myHIVteam Member said:

I was on both of those meds. The Prezcobix and Tivicay worked fine but they really didn't help so much with my numbers. I was on both for about two years when I started having problems with my… read more

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

I am having a hard time defining what long term survivor guilt is. What does this mean? March 2021 will be 36 years for myself. Living in Hawaii, the gay community here is small and I only had a… read more

What Do You Do With Unused Medications

What Do You Do With Unused Medications

I was on a regimen of Truvada and Tivicay since being diagnosed in July of 2015. My doctor added Prescobix about 6 months ago, and has now switched me to triumeq. Once I establish if this medication keeps me undetectable, what do you do with the unused medicine. I have full unopened bottles of all three medications. I hate to throw them away since these medications are expensive,but I know it is illegal to give them to anyone since the prescription is in my name. Can they be donated to a… read more

Anyone On Juluca Or Its Components Endurant And Tivicay?

Anyone On Juluca Or Its Components Endurant And Tivicay?

Is anyone out there on Juluca? Biktarvy is a definite NO as Genvoya almost killed me and my current two pill combo Prezcobix and Isentress has to go. Just been doing my research as my natural course was derailed by a nasty viral infection so I’m looking to get as much of these toxins out of my regimen and Juluca is the first with only 2. Thanks everyone💫
