Bad Dreams, Nightmares Returning:
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I was on Sustiva for about 7 years which is generally known to cause night terrors, or not being able to determine what is real or not. Things got better after three weeks or so, but the nightmares continued. Eventually I learned through therapy how to deal with them. Sustiva was a good medicine for my HIV and helped keep me undetectable so I stuck with it.

Then for several years after the nightmares were absent or less intense. Of course stopping Sustiva really helped, but I have been on… read more

Should Mental Health Be Studied And Addressed With HIV Infection?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

Do you suffer from anxiety, depression fear, anger …etc.? Has HIV prompted this or made it worse?

Can Someone Explain To Me How It Works The HIV Treatment Through Medicare Insurance? I’m New Resident In The USA … Thank You!
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I don’t know what’s the best way to handle my Medicare treatment related to my HIV. I have a Medical Insurance and I went to visit the first doctor that the insurance recommended to me. But each month I have to pay $80 for 1 month of retrovirals and pay too for the visit to the Doctor … I’m not sure is this the right way to do it or if there a best option to handle it.
