Do you take at the same time everyday? This past week (the first week while taking), I began taking it at 7:30 am the first few day but missed Sunday's dose and ended up taking it at 9:30 am but got back on track Monday. Do you think that might affect it in some way? I heard possibly about the virus becoming resistance if I don't take my med's everyday at the same time?

Am I Infected? / Re: What is my risk?

Hi

The the runny nose is not a symptom. If you are sick see a doctor.
There are a number of different combinations for PEP - Stop worrying about what other people are doing or not and focus on yourself.

Finish the PEP test at 6 weeks and 13 weeks post PEP, in the meantime continue and focus on your life as normal.

I am so scared that I been having runny nose after 8 days of exposure and still having it after 3 weeks of exposure. It got the worse when it was 2 weeks after exposure. I know that you don't diagnose hiv based on symptoms, but I just want to know to ease my anxiety a bit, can the PEP that I took cause this? The PEP that I took is Teevir, similar to Atripla, it also concerns me that it seem not many are taking this as Pep treatment.

Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Re: Started Trivicay+Discovy
« Last post by harleymc on December 07, 2016, 07:50:14 PM »
The reduced dosage studies have always been on people who have a history of prolonged viral suppression while on treatment. There are no experts anywhere recommending reduced dosing for people new to treatment.

If some time in the future you want to investigate this for yourself, you would be advised to do it under very close medical care with frequent testing.

Is that why they tested me for this at my last appointment at the health department? I thought it was harder to get sexually?

From my limited knowledge, guys correct me if I'm wrong, but it's easier to get than HIV.

Estoy infectado? / Re: Urgente Andy necesito ayuda

Porqué tengo los ganglios inflamados?

Esa pregunta es algo por Vd. y su doctor.  No hay nada en su cuenta que puedo ver que el VIH es la problema por Vd.o su pareja.

Ahora tengo que decir si continuas volviendo aqui con mas dudas y preguntas sobre este situacion vas a ver su acceso aqui bloquado po 28 dias o mas.  Vaya a su doctor.

You're welcome.

Yes, your symptoms sound more related to seasonal illnesses starting to go about now that winter is upon us.
