Stocrin and anxiety
« on: December 04, 2012, 04:38:26 AM »
Hi guys,

I've been reading this forum and it did help me coping with my side effect of Stocrin.

I've been taking stocrin and Truvada for 3 months now and been having anxiety attacks for two months now.
it does get a little bit better if I go swimming or if I take a long walk though.

I've discused this with my doctor and he suggested to change my medications rather to take antidepressants.

My dilemma is, if it's good or replace Stocrin or is it better to start taking antidepressants. My VL is undetectable.

What is the best substitute for Stocrin for you?

Can anyone who has already replaced Stocrin due to anxiety help.
How long does it take to stop anxiety after stopping Stocrin?

Is Eviplera good substitute?

Anyone?  :)
(09-05-2012) VL (1.010) CD4 305 28%
(09-15-2012) Started Stocrin & Truvada
(10-09-2012) VL (UD)
(12-11-2012) VL (UD) CD4 394 30%
(12-13-2012) Changed to Truvada, prezista & Nurvir due to Anxiety

All modern combinations work as well as each other.

Eviplera is a good substitute for Stocrin, there are others, check the possible side effects and how they may impact on your life before you decide. Obviously, the choice of meds in your area is a consideration.

Good luck and congrats on the undetectable viral load.
