Are Integrase Inhibitors Less Toxic With Less Side Effects Than PI's? (Tivicay Vs. Prezista/Norvir)

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

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

Thank you I was taking mine at night and you're right I have problems sleeping so I'm going to try taking it in the daytime

Triumeq

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I don't have a question. I wanted to say. This one best treatments I have tried. No side effects. 😁 thank you.

A myHIVteam Member

Wow! That sucks and had to be horrible...

Triumeq

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I was in the research group back in 2011. When approved it came under the name Triumeq. I gained wIt and fatty liver. I blame that on more of laziness. I am glad to hear others have insomnia. This last month I was hospitalized for kidney stones. The Dr in the hospital and my primary said to ask ID doc next appointment if Triumeq could cause them. Anyone know?

A myHIVteam Member

I have been on Triumeq for many years. Insomnia and some light headedness are most noticeable side effects. Better than anything else I've tried. Blood sugar is high but not sure if that is caused… read more

A myHIVteam Member

Everyone is different. Took me almost 18 months and 4 kinds of meds. Started Symtuza, then Biktarvy, then Triumeq, then Triumeq combined with Trogarzo. Last one did the trick and I did Trogarzoread more

What Medication Do Y'all Consider The Best?

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭
A myHIVteam Member

Triumeq works best for me. I tried Symtuza but didn't like the side effects, so I switched back to Triumeq. I am considering the injection in the future.

Antiretroviral Therapy

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

When I see my GP on January 11th I would like to know what type of antiretroviral medication is a good one that doesn’t have the side effect of trouble sleeping. Because on the injections, they have that side effect, it also causes depression and anxiety. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A myHIVteam Member

Indeed @A myHIVteam Member what would be the point. My inclination would be Biktarvy myself if I could afford it.

Triumeq

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I've been positive for 20 years and on Triumeq over 12 years
For the last 2 years I have become detectable very gradually, from viral load of 50 in July 2022 to 240 in February 2023. Does it just stop working over time? When and how to decide to change to another medication? A local HIV specialist suggested I stay with Triumeq and blindly add on 2 other meds on top. I say blindly as they can't or won't do drug resistance testing until my VL is over 500 here in Hawaii. Is that really true?… read more

A myHIVteam Member

I've been on triumeq, prezista, and ritonavir over the past 15+ years (all 3 simultaneously). Keeps me undetectable and healthy.

Hi all

Does anyone know if antivirals such as Triumeq have a negitive effect with drug efficiency?

A myHIVteam Member

Yes thats true. Its the.Abacavir component that you can react to
Steve, I presume your Doctor has already checked your suitability to the Abacavir component? Can you also check with your Doctor if… read more

Triumeq

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I've been on triumeq for at least 8 or so years. I take it every day. Before that since 2004 I took 3 other pills. Truvada and 2 others I forgot their names

Anyway I took a dr ordered blood test last week and I have a viral load of 50. It is no longer undetectable I'm wondering why. I've never missed a dose as far as I can think of

A myHIVteam Member

that was a blip. It happened again in March of 2024. Viral load of 60. My doctor wants me to retest in a little while. She may have been thinking because I was taking vitamins or something in the… read more
