14days of no Rx after 15 years on regimen!
« on: August 27, 2014, 11:36:56 AM »
I suspended treatment regimen due to INABILITY TO GAIN BODY WEIGHT with PERFECT lab reports (regular stuff and undetectable for 15 years) of 15 years of Ziagen, Lexiva and Epivir as doctor wanted to only switch out Lexiva for Isentress.

The HIV doctor wanted to start full body CAT scans to "try to find SOMETHING" (eating 3-4 good non-GMO organic fat/protein/carb meals a day)

Another doctor that the HIV doctor dismissed (as usual arrrgh) said epivir was related to facial wasting in his dermatological experience.

SO I dropped that for 10 days then eliminated ALL 3 drugs for a BREAK two weeks to go.

Of course, I will test regularly (they are getting back to me about how regularly) and get back on medications that will not promote the facial wasting, body weight loss and veininess that defined my body for over a year.

My Question is:  Does anyone have Any suggestions on what to take with Isentress that EXCLUDES zerit (of course), viread (as I have osteopenia for years), Sustiva (brain issues) and Ziegan and Epivir?
