Descovy Or Truvada?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Truvada Two-Step Anyone?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

So it's been some time since I've been on Truvada, however I've noticed that once I started on it many years ago, I have had a rather "shitty" time (and I mean that quite literally). Has anyone else ever had this problem, specifically with Truvada? If so, is there anything you have been able to do with it? Has a change of meds worked? It's better now that I'm on Triumeq instead, however it is basically Truvada and another medication rolled into one pill, so I'm wondering about perhaps changing… read more
