Genvoya question
« on: July 10, 2018, 07:32:00 pm »
Hey all!

Iíve been on Genvoya for about a month now. I was wondering if anyone else who is also taking this medication have issues with constipation and or weight gain?

I have had weight gain from taking genvoya. wouldn't say constipation. more the opposite. when I first started taking it, I was ok, then as months went on I started to get really bad anxiety. very fast heartbeat, and muscle pain. genvoya comes in second for the worst pill I have taken. but not everyone is the same. just keep a close eye on it. if you start to develop a fast heartbeat and anxiety problems I would come off them quick. they have been terrible for me and being on them this last year and a half has been the worst, atripla was my worst nightmare. they have given me triumeq now. but I have read on here that they have similar effects to what atripla does, so I am going to speak to my doctor today before I start them. because once I am on them then I need to take them for a month. I hope this helps

On Genvoya 10 months, itís easy now except sometimes the timing with food. Weight sticks on me a little more than with previous meds but still slowly shedding excess. Had diarrhea for a while at first, it really took 5-6 months to get fully used to it. I do have an exercise habit and usually eat well.

I am some couple of weeks away from switching from Stribild to Genvoya as suggested by my doctor.
 As the combination of medicines are similar to each other hopefully (I have been reassured) I won't experience any unwanted weight gain and other complications, time will tell.
Sustiva, Truvada, Complera, Stribild
