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

So, I ask this because it lets us all know about other medications available and reviews on them. I understand everyone is different and side effects may vary, but I'm asking specifically about your experience with the medication. Thank you for sharing/responding and have a blessed day.

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

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

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

How Often Does You Doctor Order Labs To Check Your CD-4 Count, And If You're Undectable?

How Often Does You Doctor Order Labs To Check Your CD-4 Count, And If You're Undectable?

Just started seeing new HIV doc. He suggests I get my labs once a year which is totally different than my other docs that ordered them every three to six months. I told him I am a long term survivor. Didn't seem he treats many LTS patients, mostly newbies, and prep maintenance. Finally convinced him to see me and order labs every six months which he said yes to rather reluctantly. Wondering how often you see your HIV doc and get labs every year?

For Those Of Us Suffering From Lipoatrophy And/or Lipodystrophy:

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. As a long termer having had HIV 32 years I was on all three for quite a long time back in the 90's when med choices were few. And have both Lipoatrophy and Lipodystrophy in some shape or form.
