Do You Take *Genvoya*
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

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

Medication Defaults
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

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!!!

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

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

I take 8 pill’s with my breakfast and blood pressure and antidepressant at bed time. Never miss my other meds as I never want to go to that dark place before I started antidepressant

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A myHIVteam Member

I think about stopping my meds all the time. I feel like I'm ready to be done but than I remember how horrible I felt before I went on meds. I was so sick. I don't want to feel that way again. I'm… read more

Eating Food And Taking Medication.
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

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

I take it regardless if I have food with me or not but I try and make sure I do eat something within an hour of taking my med. Only 1 of the 4 meds I take for HIV suggests taking it with food. I have… read more

Does Anyone Have Questions On How To Use This Site? Ask, And I Shall Answer The Best Way I Can.
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I see many people saying they do not understand this site. Or I see people commenting on post that are directed to other people. It is great to engage in conversation, but it can be rude just to start talking to someone when they are talking to someone else. Kind of like eating at a restaurant and talking to the person with you and the person at the next table answers your questions
