Self Imposed Drug Holiday, need advice and meds
« on: March 27, 2013, 06:40:52 PM »
So I am about to run out of my meds within the next fews days. I am currently on Truvada and Isentress. I went to a clinic here in LA however they will not see me till the 04/01 and they will not do my financial till 04/05. I have told them that I will be running out of meds within the next few days but they don't really give a shit and just ignore my calls and emails. So at this moment I have no choice but to take a drug holiday which is fine with me. My only concern is that I will need to come up with some Emtriva in order to ween myself while the Tenofivar is still active. Does anyone know someone who could spare a couple of emtrivas? I am in the Los Angeles area if that helps.

As much as I was looking forward to going on a drug holiday I had a generous poster come through and offer me a months worth of truvada/isentress to keep  me going till I get my ADAP processed next week. A big thank you to the person who stepped up to help!

BTW why can't I modify my original post?

Due to the abuse of the modify feature by some members it became necessary to limit the time to edit post to within 30 minutes .
