Welbutrin
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I asked my ID for a recommendation on a smoking cessation and she suggested that i ask my PC for Wellbutrin.

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?
