Here is a link that can provide some useful information.

Muchas gracias por su respuesta.

Me alivia mucho sus palabras.

Entonces sólo por tener certeza en futuras ocasiones:

¿Es una situación de riesgo que caiga semen de un hombre en mi piel?

Muchas gracias.
Are you sleeping OK?  I felt a lot of what you are complaining of and we finally figured out that severe insomnia was screwing with me.  I normally dislike throwing out suggestions like this since not everyone has the same issues with every drug.

Awesome!!!!  I got the replacement panes ordered today at an unbelievable price.  FREE!!!!  My sister's company has both P516 obscure glass and frosted acid etched glass.  She is bringing them to me next week and I told her I prefer the acid ones.

She is bringing me a sample of the obscure just make sure.
Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Re: Stribild and Dairy
« Last post by Ann on Yesterday at 10:23:15 AM »

I believe have been reasonably diplomatic in my approach to posting, being cautious and careful not to offend or post any material which is false...

But you were - repeatedly - posting incorrect/false information when posting these nuggets below:

My doctor did not inform me of this,,, anyways you don’t need to be a specialist to work out that you should avoid taking ‘Stribild’ with antacids, including natural food antacids such as bananas or milk. Absorption of Stribild is affected by antacids.

So if you enjoy a banana milkshake, don’t have one 4hrs before or after taking Stribild!

Antacids, including natural antacid foods taken with Stribild, could be the cause of side effects or ineffective treatment.

Antacid natural foods include bananas, milk, yogurt and prob other dairy products. Best to avoid these in the few hours before or after taking Stribild.

Don't swallow your Stribild with a banana milkshake, prob safer to swallow it with a can of special brew.

Until recently, I swallowed my once a day Stribild in the morning with a glass of ice cold FRESH full fat dairy milk. However, due to a video about 'Stribild' on YouTube, I decided that MILK (a natural antacid) was not such a good idea!

I currently swallow my Meds with a glass of bottled mineral water.

Anyone got any other top suggestions on the best liquid to ease that big Stribild tablet down ones throat?

Foods such as milk and bananas do NOT have sufficient antacid properties to affect any hiv meds. Telling people otherwise will only serve to upset and scare them unnecessarily.

Maybe you didn't post in EVERY Stribild thread that exists on the forum, but you sure had a good try at posting in most of the recent ones. Fair enough when the information is accurate, but your information was NOT accurate. I believe that's what Betty had a problem with. Betty did not lie and is not a LIAR.

While perhaps your initial Time Out was a little hasty, your behaviour upon your return has been less than stellar. I'm giving you a second Time Out for the abuse and name-calling you meted out to Betty in your latest post.

Please think twice about your behaviour before you post again when your Time Out is over.

Edward, Please answer the question, have you been diagnosed with HIV and confirmed with a western blot ? We have answered your questions so please respond to ours . Thanks .   
A few days. I still am very nervous to start as well. I can't figure out what the best time to take it ia going to be for me. I rarely eat breakfaat, and also can't get a set schedule for dinner. What is an appropriate time frame? My specialist didn't give me a window to work with.
