Has Anyone Seen The Information Online About Stopping HIV Meds And Still Living Strong Healthy Lives, Is This Just BS? 4 Mos Off Meds Now.

By the way, I have only been on three different regimens since my diagnosis in 1995. I started with trizavir, then I went on Atripla and most recently I was switched to Genvoya. I have never blown a regimen, however I did have some compliance issues with the Trizavir. Currently, I am without insurance hence the reason I am off the meds. I will be eligible for employer based healthcare in June. Thanks all.

Defiantly contact the company for Genvoya, they will make sure that you get the medication. I have insurance which covers most of the cost but what is not covered they take care of the balance. Before… read more

Does Anyone Have A Picture And/or List Of A HIV "Cocktail" From The 90's?

Does Anyone Have A Picture And/or List Of A HIV "Cocktail" From The 90's?

I am trying to wrap my head around what a real cocktail was in the past. When I received my HIV diagnoses in 2012 doctors put me on Atripla, a 3-in-1 pill, that very same day. I have not seen any TV show or movie explain what past cocktails where. In the movie Rent, they say "AZT TIME" but never really explain if that is a three times a day thing or 15 times a day thing. Even in the movie Dallas Buyers Club, they go through a list of the medicine but not dosages or dosing schedule. I believe… read more

@A myHIVteam Member is correct there were no cocktails just AZT of which I never partook of thankfully because of my long denial after diagnosis. By the time I started getting sick, there were other… read more

Hi. Has Anyone Switched From Atripla To Genvoya?

Hi. Has Anyone Switched From Atripla To Genvoya?

I've been on Atripla 11 yrs with good success & little side effects, but concerned it may be hard on my bones, teeth and kidneys. Heard and read that Genvoya may be a better alternative and not as harsh on my body (especially as I get older . . . 61 now) Would appreciate hearing from anyone who has made that switch and what your experience has been like.
