meds switch and weight loss?
« on: November 17, 2018, 06:56:55 pm »
hi all,

it's been a while since i last posted.  happy to say im doing good. 

i recently switched (about 3 weeks ago) my meds from genvoya to triumeq, as i thought it might help with my cholesterol levels. i haven't got that tested yet, but now that's not my concern.

granted it's only a 3 pound  difference, I've noticed that my stubborn weight (which has been consistently 155-160) has started to go down.  could it be from my med change?  this includes no change to diet or exercise

any thoughts or input?
