Ok so this could be a continuum of the last question I posted about sun exposure. But I will just make a different post. Since this is on my mind now (because I JUST DID IT), I had another question about how to take your medication
A lot of the HIV pills you must take with food. What if you are in a position to where you can't eat but must take your pill? Do you take your pill without eating? Do you find a quick bite to eat somewhere or somehow
I had an early supper and ate heavy. Now that it… read more
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
Took it for years with no problem
I’ve read that those of us on once daily ARVs might be a thing of the past in the very near future. Many studies are showing real promise that injectables are going to be the new gold standard treatment.we have cabanuva currently but from what I’m understanding soon there will be more injections options where one injection a month is all that’s needed. I’m on the fence on whether I like this option. Taking 1 pill a day is not a big deal but it’s a reminder every day that you have this disease… read more
Taking meds daily at the right time can keep up undetectable. For some people, after awhile that/those pill/pills can get frustrating. Have you or had you, ever decided to stop taking your meds? If you stopped, are you still off them? If you stopped and restarted, what made you restart? Have you ever thought about it but never did it?
HIV therapies are a must to keep the virus in check. Keeping the time you take your pill(s) at the same time everyday will help keep you at an undetectable level. Besides taking your HIV regimen religiously every day, do you tend to lag behind on any other medications you take? I take my HIV pill at 8pm every night. But my neurapathy pill, inflammatory pills, lung medication I tend to lack on sometimes. I have alarms set to take my meds, but sometimes I just don't take them. BESIDES your HIV… read more
How has your lifestyle changed after you started taking your medication
For me the beginning used to be a big struggle,many thoughts and regrets such that I skipped med and I didn’t want to continue with the meditation
Not long I found that my CD4 had started declining so fast! Had to go through counseling and set med alarm 🥲took my meds bounced back!!
since then I’ve never skipped or regretted taking my medication the right way. Never been hospitalized nor do I have any complications!!!

I was recently diagnosed about 2 weeks ago. I got my levels tested and I believe I am at the undetectable level. I go into an HIV counselor in a few weeks. I would like to ask how quickly did others start taking medicine after being diagnosed? I would like to start medicine/treatment as soon as possible......
I started meds as soon as they let me, but I had an aids diagnosis.
Hey guys those who started with a low cd4 and started treatment and of course your antibiotics did you guys go places like out to eat and etc I find myself in the house often because I be scared and I just don’t want to mess anything up I been taking my meds on time everyday and I feel alot better than I was just curious on how y’all handle things
