Welcome


Welcome to the POZ/AIDSmeds Community Forums, a round-the-clock discussion area for people with HIV/AIDS, their friends/family/caregivers, and others concerned about HIV/AIDS.  Click on the links below to browse our various forums; scroll down for a glance at the most recent posts; or join in the conversation yourself by registering on the left side of this page.

Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

  • The information shared in these forums, by moderators and members, is designed to complement, not replace, the relationship between an individual and his/her own physician.

  • All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.

  • Forums members must behave at all times with respect and honesty. Posting guidelines, including time-out and banning policies, have been established by the moderators of these forums.

  • We ask all forums members to provide references for health/medical/scientific information they provide, when it is not a personal experience being discussed. Please provide hyperlinks with full URLs or full citations of published works not available via the Internet. Additionally, all forums members must post information which are true and correct to their knowledge.

Update: good news
« on: July 25, 2013, 01:35:38 PM »
I'll make this short.
  I started COMPLERA in March with CD4 at 350....and a viral load around 200.   After only 4 months my CD4 is 560 and viral load undetectable.
I actually "feel" better.  The increase in T cells cleared up that nasty jock rot I was getting. Overall, I feel good. Have more energy too.

That is great, especially in such a short amount of time.  Glad you're feeling more energetic.

Its good to hear that you actually feel good as well as the lab tests confirming this. As we all know they do not always go together.

thanks
I wish everyone the best with their regimine.
My doctor still wants me to loose weight, whereas I feel good and have no wish to do so.  I suppose he wants to me to feel....even better and to avoid diabetes.  I am at 270 right now.
