Are Taking Drug Holidays A Thing Of The Past?

Are Taking Drug Holidays A Thing Of The Past?

I've been taking HIV medication from 1996 until now. That is 25 years of taking lifesaving but rather toxic medication. Just wondered it anyone has taken one in the past or now. If so, for how long, and were there were any resistance or viral load consequences during the break?

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!!!

Was Anything Decided If Particular HIV Meds Are Beneficial Against Covid?

Was Anything Decided If Particular HIV Meds Are Beneficial Against Covid?

This topic was discussed during the course of the virus. Wondered if there ever was any scientific evidence to support it, and what HIV meds. I've been completely vaccinated and had my booster. But now seeing another Covid variant emerging out of South Africa and spreading fast to border countries, I figure we need all the protection we can get as immune compromised individuals.

I would be sure and ask your doctor. I currently take two pills a day. My doctor said I could miss up to a week with no worries. That said, I have never done that, but it's still good to know if I… read more

Prostate

Prostate

Should I get my prostate checked, as I have been having trouble keeping an erection and lack of ejaculation only twice a month. I also urinate a lot and it tends to sometimes dribble as well.

A myHIVteam Member said:

I have those troubles kinda, I can get hard as hell but I can't ejaculate. I dribble is minimal in comparison to my difficulty urinating. My dr. stays part of my neuropathy.

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.
The United States is now behind in a bimonthly injection.
Sounds like the United States just doesn't care about HIV… read more

Medication

Medication

I’ve been taking Dovato for 4 years and straight away I was undetectable after 6 months . Lately I’ve been feeling down with high fevers of 39 and painful joints . My viral load is still undetectable and my CD4 are over a 1000 . So all good but has anyone experienced these symptoms? Is it the medication ?

A myHIVteam Member said:

I would ask your doctor about this. It's possible your medicine could be building up and just now starting to have side effects
Or it could be possible your medicine has stopped working
Could be… read more

Does Holidays Make You Feel Even More Isolated?

Does Holidays Make You Feel Even More Isolated?

Since holidays are all about being with people who love you. Do they treat you like the sick relative? I'm so sick of that quiet alienating ignoring that comes from the putting aside your feelings and validation.
