Hi Emily,

How are you?

Welcome to the forum,  I split your post from the other thread into its own thread so it can act as your introduction thread and people can reply and focus on you.

What HIV medication are you currently on? Did you have all these issues yourself and, if so how are you managing them and, if not then have you discuss it with your doctor & the option to switch if its not settling in?   

Thankfully other-than settling in stage most people are fine with treatment, if that was not the case for you than sorry to hear that. Not every combo suits everyone thankfully plenty of options

What was your current viral load level like & how do you feel?

Another reason I removed your post is its very unclear if this is your issue or simply a list from online issues i.e online package insert? Or how it's supposed to relate to the OP on the other thread ... Your post might be intended to be helpful but without context its unclear regarding the intention. 

Ill give you an example of side effects though, a really scary one for you:

Quote
Common side effects may include:
Upset stomach
mild heartburn
nausea
vomiting
bloating
gas
diarrhea
constipation
dizziness
headache
nervousness
mild itching or rash or ringing in your ears.

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur

Can increase your risk of fatal heart attack or stroke, especially if you use it long term or take high doses, or if you have heart disease.

Do not use this medicine just before or after heart bypass surgery (coronary artery bypass graft, or CABG).

May also cause stomach or intestinal bleeding, which can be fatal. 
These conditions can occur without warning , especially in older adults.


Signs of an allergic reaction:
sneezing, runny or stuffy nose; wheezing or trouble breathing; hives; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Get emergency medical help if you have signs of a heart attack or stroke:
chest pain spreading to your jaw or shoulder, sudden numbness or weakness on one side of the body, slurred speech, feeling short of breath.

All doom and gloom !!! Scary stuff, but its just over the counter Ibuprofen.!!!!
Millions take this daily, billions + users a year.

See causality of the side effects, did the drug cause the effect, or was it coincidence is not often listed, also preexisting conditions and other factors come into account, Not saying does not happen, but why worry or stress others, instead focus on better things.

Jim

Oh I see, so banned btw.

Seems you have a pharmacy connection, so tactics prehaps to scare patients and offer other treatments? I looked at the site. I knew it was some kind of trolling

You have my email address, because if I'm wrong I'll gladly apologize
