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

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

Descovy Or Truvada?

Descovy Or Truvada?

Reading up on side effects of Descovy and really considering asking my Dr. to go back to Truvada. Weight gain, higher cholesterol, and cardiovascular problems are all a side effect along with kidney damage . I think I'd prefer the kidney damage I was getting with Truvada...than the 30# I've gained since on Desovy and my cholesterol numbers are really elevated. My kidney numbers have improved. Seems to me your just trading which part of your body you'd rather damage. Am I missing something… read more

How Is Everyone Doing? What Are Some Of The Regimens You Are Taking?

How Is Everyone Doing? What Are Some Of The Regimens You Are Taking?

Reference "Hope Study" There may be different or improved options over the ones you are currently on. You may need help preparing questions for the doctor who often times don't have a lot of time.

Do you have unwanted or unnecessary side effects that you have learned to live with?

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💫

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.

P.S. - Does anyone know if there any HIV medications that have weight loss as a side effect?!

1. What HIV medication do you take
2. How do you like it/ How well does it work?
3. Side Effects?
4. Would you… read more
