Do You Take *Genvoya*

Do You Take *Genvoya*

Butterfly50 would like to know...
Good morning I am reaching out to anyone. I've been taking Genvoya for a couple of months. I'm having something going on with my heart and I feel tried all the time. And I'm always depressed. I told my doctor and she refused to change my medication. So I'm asking if anyone that's taking this med. To let me know what kind of experience you have taking Genvoya. Thanks in Advance...Butterfly50

Bimonthly Injection

Bimonthly Injection

Ive said before many times, the United States is far behind in HIV care
While the United States has just approved a monthly injection, I have noted Europe was doing a bimonhly study
The United Kindom (in Europe) has approved the first bimonhly injection.
The United States was behind the ball with U=U for 3 years.
The United States was behind in studying a monthly injection.

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
