Curious On Anyone’s Experiences With Zoloft.

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I’m already on welbutrin but on my last visit during a stressful work week my dr thought I seemed depressed and suggested adding something or talking to someone.

Is Anyone Aware Of The Patient Advocate Foundation Co-Pay Relief?

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

My infectious disease doctor helped me enroll in the Patient Advocate Foundation and I received a grant for my medications. The last five years I have paid nothing for my medications. It is worth the time looking into the payment assistance program. The grant is renewed on a yearly basis, which my doctor does for me.

I've always went on the biktarvy website and signed up for it online. I used it when I'm working w2 with benefits.

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I just switched from Genvoya to Biktarvy but had some unopened Genvoya and I hate for it to go to waste. Is there a place or person I can donate it to? I'm in the Jacksonville, FL area.

A myHIVteam Member

Thanks for the idea Xavier. I also had a barely used bottle of Genvoya and was planning to save that in case. But I hoped that the unopened bottle could be used by someone who needed it and maybe… read more
